Thank you everyone for your prayers during Storytelling Week. We had some great feedback from our schools and from parents, which I have included below:

We had an amazing time! And now we are preparing and excited for Faith in Arts week, which is taking place next week! Over the course of Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we will be in a school with multiple different artists, encouraging the students to think about faith in different ways. Please pray for our artists who are going to be involved. Here’s what you can pray for and what day it will be taking place.
Tuesday morning: Assembly with Emma Hinds, introducing the Faith in Arts week and speaking about being a Christian writer.
Tuesday morning/afternoon: Rhythm lessons for y9 with Joe Burgess (our primary school worker who is also a professional drummer) and Nathan Stirling from the band “Rivers and Robots.”
Tuesday lunchtime: Discussion session with Rachel Mann, poet.
Wednesday lunchtime: Christian group with Emma Hinds, Q&A and discussion about faith and arts.
Thursday morning: Assembly with Andy Wisdom (our secondary school worker but also singer/songwriter)
Thursday lunchtime: Discussion session with Jon Greenaway, academic and film expert.
Thursday afternoon: Afternoon lessons with Madeleine Pires (artist) and Jo Leidenhag (artist) for GCSE and A-Level art students.
Friday afternoon: Afternoon lessons with Madeleine Pires (artist) and Jo Leidenhag (artist) for GCSE and A-Level art students.
Please be praying for us and for our artists as we move through this exciting week. Please pray that the logistics all go well, and that we all can answer questions from the students with grace and sensitivity, and through us they will hear the words of Christ and his love for them.
Thank you so much for your continued support – it means so much to us and your prayers are the strength we need to continue.
