Needwood C of E Primary School

Messy Easter 2016

We had a beautiful Easter service which was a completely new approach for Needwood Church of England VA Primary which consisted of a journey through the Easter story in the form of messy church. It began with a service in the hall, singing worship and prayer and the children then processed to activities around Jesus  going to Jerusalem, Jesus at the temple, the Last Supper and the Garden of Gethsemane. The children then processed to church  singing,  ‘We have a King who rides a donkey’ and shouting ‘Hosanna!’ waving palm leaves. The rest of the service continued beautifully with readings, prayers, hymns and messy grace. Thank you to Mrs Simmonds for leading such an excellent and new style service.
