Remembering Deacon Bill Wright
In Year 6 this week, their Collective Worship group, independently decided and created a beautiful worship in memory of our Deacon Bill Wright who sadly passed away on Tuesday 12th December. The children had an image of Deacon Bill on the board, whilst they asked the children to share people they would like us to remember who have passed away; read the story of Noak's ark because they said; it was about how God will always kept his promise that everything would always be alright and we are safe with him. This was followed by a prayer before we said an eternal rest together.
