Lead Us Not Into Temptation

This morning 3E gave us a fantastic lesson in the three R’s …NO! not reading, “riting” or “rithmetic” but rather, Resist, Refuse and Run. They helped us to think about what Jesus meant when he taught us to pray “Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.” We were challenged to decide what…

3W Assembly – Forgive and Forget

3W began their assembly with a real challenge. How good are you at FORGIVING? and how good are you at FORGETTING?

We were…

They are to be congratulated for their correct identification of garlic, raisin and pitta bread. Amid the fun, we learnt how God had provided daily bread for his people, the Israelites, during their 40 years…

Smart Aled/Alec, Happy Larry, Jack-of-all-Trades and Calamity Jane (alias Aled, Fintan, Olly and Pranoy) arrived in style for the assembly and helped us to begin thinking about how names can describe our characters. We discovered more about the different names of God and how they describe His character. The Lord’s Prayer reminds us to show…

Look Out Easter Bunny!

The Buttons children arrived at Chapel early Monday morning on the trail of the Easter Bunny. News had reached them that there were Easter eggs hidden around the lawn and in the Chapel hedges.
