Reuben Watt, Youth Assembly Moderator Elect, shared with us some good news from the Christmas season 2019.

"Last November and December, over 800 year 2 students from 13 different schools visited Redhill Methodist Church and Reigate Park URC. They all came to attend the Christmas Journey.

"The Christmas Journey is an interactive retelling of the Christmas story exploring why Christmas is important to Christians.. The children had the opportunity to make bread with Mary, help the shepherds look after the sheep on the hill side, visit the stable and hear the story from the perspective of the animals, and meet a very special angel. The children also explored where the Christmas story fits in the wider bible story, using Godly Play, and found out more about the Wise men and their gifts.

 "It was such a special experience for all as well as the 60 plus volunteers from the local churches!"
