Trusting In God
w/c 8 October 2018
In the Gospel this week Jesus tells us that we need to welcome the Kingdom of God like a child. This message is explored in the assembly through an animated story in which a boy called Benji learns how to trust in God. The assembly offers the children a chance to reflect how trusting in God helps them feel at peace and make loving decisions.
“He put his arms round them, laid his hands on them and gave them his blessing.” Mark 10: 2-16
