Pupils from St John’s Primary, Right Respecting Schools Committee, will be joining us at our evening service on 18th March to tell us about the work they have been doing in accordance with the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development (that we have been looking at in our Lent Group and Lent Evening Worship). They will seek to challenge us on how we might be able to work together in the future. Hopefully this worship event will be well supported by our own congregation (in this Year of Young People) to encourage the pupils in their endeavours, to foster new working relationships between St John’s Parish Church and St John’s Primary School, and to allow us to be inspired into action by their example.
