WOW Assemblies. We now have three assembly teams in Bishops Stortford, Sawbridgeworth and Dunmow. With 8 volunteers we currently visit 9 schools once each term presenting assemblies which encourage pupils to question and wonder spiritually.
We are committed to working with primary aged children to share knowledge of the Bible and Christian values. We do this using drama, songs, puppets, stories and games in line with the UK National Curriculum.
Bible In Literacy. We are currently developing three lesson plans to support teachers in delivering Christian messages alongside other
disciplines such as ITC, literacy, geography etc... The Bible society material BILL uses Game boards and text cards to give the Bible message in a clear structure and in only 200 words. The CD-Rom provides eye catching, thought provoking material which reinforces the Christian message of Good News.
It's Your Move is an annual project to help year 6 pupils prepare for transition to secondary school. We tell the story of Joseph in Genesis and look how he coped with changes, choices and challenges. We spend time with the pupils, sharing our testimonies and giving them an opportunity to think through how to cope with moving to a new school, making new friends etc and leave them each with a copy of the Scripture Union booklet "Its Your Move". In 2013 we were able to speak to over 830 children in 24 schools...none of this would be possible without a huge team of volunteers and specific donations from churches and individuals.
