The next School Friends' Services are on Wednesday 9 and Wednesday 16 October 2019. The services are for all year groups from Year 1 to Year 7. As usual, they will be participative and we would ask all schools to contribute in some way towards our theme of Friendship. Your school’s contribution may be in the form of a poem, reading, song, dance or drama, or in fact anything you can think of! To register your school's interest in taking part, please contact Vicky on 01243 812986 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no charge for this event to School Friends.
Last year's School Friends' Service was part of the nationwide INSPIRE event on the morning of Friday 9 November. The project called on young people to think about peace and conflict resolution in their local communities and personal relationships.Schools were invited to sign the INSPIRE Peace Charter and create their own Peace pledges to bring to the event, as well as contribute in the form of a song, reading or prayer. Following the service, pupils worked with professional artists to contribute to a large scale art installation on the theme of Remembrance and Peace in the North Transept.
