Ethos Conference at St John's

Members of Year 4 ETHOS group went to St. John's primary school in Dukinfield on Monday 24th July to join in with their Conference. We met in the lovely St. John's Centre and made new friends. The theme was The Main Thing based around Matthew 22 v 37-39  and we focused on Loving God, Loving others and Loving ourselves and how we show that care and kindness.

After collective worship where we learned some new songs with actions and watched a drama about Martha and Mary, we split up into groups.

In the workshops we made friendship bracelets to give to someone else and mirrors with the bible verse " People look at the appearance, but God looks at the heart" from  1 Samuel 16 v 7. We all made cakes with hearts on top and also went into a beautiful reflective area. There were pebbles, tags and lollipop sticks to write prayers on about being thankful for  the care shown to us and heart chains to make, to think about how we show care and how we could do more. There were cushions and seats to relax on and bible verses and books to read. Gentle music was being played and it felt really calm.

Holly said " it was a great day and nice to just go and join in and not lead it!"
