The Greatest Commandment
w/c 23 and 30 October 2017
God wants us to experience love, both in the giving and receiving of it. This assembly helps children to recognise love through actions and helps them to think of ways that they can be loving too.
“You shall love the Lord your God… You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”Matthew 22:34-40
Key Point / Learning Objective:
To know that God wants us to love him, to love our neighbours and to learn ways that we can do this.
The children will be able to give examples of ways in which they can love God and love others.
