Year Six Retreat - Shine Your Light

  • Shine Your Light

    God gives each and everyone of his children a light to shine! It's never taken away and it never goes away, although sometimes we choose to hide it. This retreat is designed to remind Year Six that God is always with them and that they are asked to be a light of Christ for others. This retreat is a celebration of who they are and of their time at Primary School. It gives an opportunity to think about who God calls them to be as they prepare for a new chapter in their lives.

  • An Afternoon Retreat

    This lovely retreat is designed as an afternoon off-curriculum retreat. It begins with a short film before lunch from Dan and Emily to say hi and prepare Year Six for their afternoon, followed by the main retreat after lunch.

  • Enjoy the Retreat with your Class

    All the work has been done for you by OneLife Music, meaning there is very little for the lead teacher to do! The first chapter on the platform will provide them with a Planner, Attachments and Teachers note and the rest is led for you on the platform. Everything has been thoughtfully structured to allow Year Six a time to pray, sing, share and enjoy activities and because it is pre-recorded, you can make your purchase and hold the retreat on an afternoon that is best for you.

| A celebration of lives in faith |

Matthew. 5:14-16.

Jesus said to his disciples: “You are like light for the whole world. A city built on top of a hill cannot be hidden, and no one would light a lamp and put it under a clay pot. A lamp is placed on a lampstand, where it can give light to everyone in the house. Make your light shine, so that others will see the good that you do and will praise your Father in heaven.”
