Year 5 children were invited to attend a residential at the Youth Village in Allensford
Step Back – Discovering and Sharing My Treasures
The theme of this retreat unpacks the idea that through salvation history God always shows his love to us. In the beginning, out of all that God created, we are his favourite; then through Jesus, God’s only son, we are reminded how important we are, and today God shows his love through the people we meet, and his Spirit lives in every single one of us.
The children had a fantastic time where they followed a Spiritual Programme throughout their two day stay. The children were very excited to receive an unscheduled visit from Father Dermott, who they all have very fond memories of.
They also enjoyed a fun talent show on the evening where they show cased their talents, followed by a disco.
The children were well behaved and a credit to our school. Thank you to the Youth Ministry Team for a wonderful residential visit.
The children designed a little prayer card to take home with them as a keepsake and a reminder of their time at the Youth Village:
Thank you for a fab time we had at the Youth Village.
The fun and games led by the team captains were great!
Thank you for the Ministry Team.
Please look after everyone at the Youth Village so we can see them again.
We had a mint time learning about all the stories told by the team about believing in ourselves.
Please help us to have big dreams for ourselves as you have big dreams for us.
Help us to use all the gifts that you have given us to allow others to believe in themselves.
We will tell people how much fun we had!
