We are God's Masterpiece

| Ephesians 2:10 |

A retreat for the whole primary school: Celebrating that in God's eyes we are all unique and valuable. Your 'Unique and Valuable' retreat is specially designed to allow your school to be off curriculum for an afternoon together, giving this time to God. This retreat can be run from your classrooms allowing everyone in school to be on retreat together. It can also be run from the school hall if you are able to bring your community together. Because they are pre-recorded, you can make your purchase and hold the retreat on an afternoon that is best for you. All the work has been done for you by OneLife Music: Liturgies and songs have been recorded for the children. Dan and Emily share their thoughts and ideas with their sharing films and the carefully structured class activities for KS1, Upper & Lower KS2 allow children to work with their teacher and classmates to explore the message of the retreat. *We would expect schools to adhere to current guidelines regarding COVID -19*
