Christmas Presentations

Christmas  presentations happening all over the place between now and the end of term.

 “Every aspect of the presentation was well thought out and executed beautifully. The children’s attention was focused from start to finish. I would love to see every school to have the opportunity to participate in such a presentation.” Elizabeth (retired RE Teacher)

 Interested in finding out more? Might this work in your church for a local school? Then do get in touch. If you are local and wanted to visit I’m involved 25-29 November at Slough Baptist Church. Do e-mail or call to find out more. If elsewhere there may be an event near you. Resources are available to save re-inventing the wheel and I am aware of over 40 locations involved from Altrincham to Woodley, Gravesend to Glasgow. The aim is to provide a warm welcome to a church and share in a variety of ways the Christmas Miracle with primary aged pupils. Most do this for 11 year olds (Year 6).  I’ve been part of this  for 19 years now and it remains the most significant initiative  I have been involved with because of the way that it has developed both locally and nationally. Eg in this area for 30 schools and around 2000 pupils. Across the country around 15,000 pupils. See www.sloughbaptistchurch.org.uk/schoolsweek there is also a great resource entitled  ‘Top Tips on developing partnerships between church and schools’ available from local Christian books shops or Scripture Union www.scriptureunion.org.uk/shop

 Here’s some feedback we had from our Easter Cracked presentations earlier in the year:

“ I thought that this was an outstanding event! The children enjoyed it thoroughly and so did I! J

“ Fantastic! We were warmly welcomed and the team gave their all to make it memorable and meaningful. Thank you!”

“ I love the fact you are able to explain the Easter story in a way that children from all backgrounds/religions can access it and engage with it. Thank you again “

“ Always a great pleasure coming to Slough Baptist Church. Children are able to do a lot of follow up work from the day including lots of written work!”

“ Your presentation appealed well to the different types of learning styles that we try and cater for at school, known a VAK (visual, auditory, kinaesthetic)- a good combination of activities”

“ As usual, the children were enthralled! Absorbing and accessible presentation “
