Experience Church is an interactive, multi-sensory way of engaging children in our local church - this year over 150 Year Five pupils from St Michael's Middle School, "experienced church" over two days this October. Six parts of the church building are used to focus on - the font, the prayer corner, the lectern, the stain glass window, the altar and the door.

At the lectern they discuss that God cares for all living creatures and does not want us to worry, and ask the children what do they worry about? When they look at the stain glass window, they teach that <span style="font-size: 1rem;">Jesus wanted his followers to be kind and generous - be lights shining in the darkness. The children decorated glass jars to show good things in the world and acts of love and kindness. The candle is their light shining out.</span>
