In RE we are learning about belonging and how Christians know that they belong. We are also thinking about how the church belongs to us and it’s role in the community.
We visited St Blaise Church to see this in action. Inside the church were posters for knit and natter, film nights and information nights – everyone is welcome at St Blaise.
Reverend Phil met us at the church and answered our questions. We talked about his work and the church. The cross is a Christian symbol all over the world. It is very important and united Christians. This brass cross has brown marks on it – Rev Phil told us that it is bat poo!!
We were also allowed to look in the safe where all the marriage, birth and deaths records are kept. Rev Phil said that people all over the world write to him to find out about their relatives. This is another way that the church connects with everyone. We found Megan and Kelly’s names because Megan got married at St Blaise in the summer.
Beech class had an amazing time at St Blaise Church and we hope to be able to do lots more visits over the school year.
