Global Wave of Prayer

Redwood class were invited to St Helen’s on Friday afternoon by Reverend Norman to take part in the ‘Global wave of prayer.’ This is a special time of year between Ascension and Pentecost which encourages people from all around the world to join in and pray together. At St Helen’s the children rotated around 6 prayer stations based on ‘Ichthus’ the Greek word meaning fish. The Greek spelling translates to Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Saviour. At each prayer station the children carried out a different activity: writing prayers with secret messages, making clay fish, making glow fish, making prayer bracelets and creating prayer fish. At each prayer station the children had an opportunity to reflect and pray on a particular aspect. It was lovely to be part of such an important global event and the children thoroughly enjoyed it!
