History in the Making
This year Chaplains from St John’s, St Margaret’s and St Aidan’s joined together to create the inaugural Year Six Prayer Space and Transition Service, which took place on Wednesday, 23 November 2016 in St John’s Cathedral.
During the day students from five different Anglican schools participated in Prayer Spaces which included the themes of Sorry, Wow, Thank you, Please and Together. Reverend Susan, College Chaplain explained, “From my experience of creating our first Transition Prayer Space, each station invites the student to reflect and pray about their primary school years as they transition into secondary school. Following on from this, Archbishop Phillip Aspinall, Bishop Alison Taylor and The Very Reverend Dr Peter Catt, Dean of St John’s Cathedral, students and Chaplains, led a joyous worship service of thanksgiving.
This really was history in the making as the day provided students from Anglican Schools an opportunity of coming together, to gain a larger picture of the Anglican Church and to meet students from other Anglican Schools.
We look forward to being involved in more wonderful opportunities such as this successful and moving day.
