School blessing by The Right Revd Philip North, Bishop of Burnley
Our school year got off to a wonderful start as Bishop Philip led our Collective Worship and shared God’s blessing with St. Stephen’s CE Primary School.
He shared an interactive story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abendigo in the flaming hot, furnace with children participating in different roles. The message from the story highlighted that whatever challenge you may face if you put your trust in God He will look after you.
It was a very special worship especially when Bishop Philip said a prayer over the water to make it ‘Holy Water’ which he then sprinkled with everywhere with a branch in order to bless our school and everyone in it.
