Cross-Factor

  This Hope Journey event is usually offered during Lent, as we prepare for Easter.  
 
"Children come into a church environment to engage with different elements and topics from the Easter story. They think about crosses from around the world, the significance of the Last Supper, engage with Palm Sunday and hear the story of someone who was there. Whilst children engage with a Christian believer’s view of the first Easter, the purpose is to deepen understanding, not convert. All are welcome regardless of faith or belief."

                                            
Pupils are given the opportunity to write prayers, poems or thoughts on leaves and add them to a prayer tree.


We plant seeds to consider how new life comes from where there appears to be nothing...as in the Easter story





On some occasions pupils have the opportunity of meeting a Roman Centurion involved in the execution or Christ. This soldier was also present on Easter Sunday and shares his story of his amazing experience of Easter.
