Heavens Above - was a very popular station because there was a beautiful tent with twinkly lights, a bubble machine and stars on the roof. Whilst children sat or lay in there, they discussed what amazes them most about the universe and what amazes them most about God.
“I liked the tent because it was a good time to sit down in silence and talk to God.” Year 6
Big Questions- this was a very popular activity. If you could ask God one Big question, what would it be? There were hundreds of amazing questions. Here are just a few:
What part of creation do you like the most?
If God created Adam and Eve after the creatures, how were dinosaurs alive for millions of years without humans?
What is it like being God?
How can you be with everyone when there’s only one of you?
How can you hear our prayers?
Why can’t we see you?
“I learnt about lots of different activities and ways I can pray. I liked realising that I am far from the only person who thinks big thoughts. The jump for joy seemed to bring my class together and we learnt about each other there.” Year 6
Davison High School kindly supported the prayer week by bringing a group of students to the first session each day which enriched the children’s experience. We are also very grateful to the clergy and their team from both St Mary’s and Offington Methodist Church for supporting the week and to governors and parents who gave up their time to volunteer. Our final thanks go to Rich, Lizzie and Suzanne from the Off the Fence Team who were at Broadwater daily and helped facilitate this amazing opportunity.
