On Friday 21st of June we were joined by year 6 pupils from St Mary and St John’s Primary School in Wigan to think about the theme of “Let your light shine”, basing the day on Matthew 5:14-16. The day helped the young people think about gifts and talents, starting with a chance to think about how each one of us is unique, and as such we all have different gifts and talents. We then had a chance to think about how we can inspire other people to use their gifts and talents, as well as giving the young people a chance to affirm each other and tell each other what they think their gifts and talents are. Finally, we ended the day by reflecting on the gifts and talents we have, how we can put them to use in our day to day lives and thanked God for all of our gifts and talents.
We really enjoyed spending our day with year 6, and we hope to see them again in the future.
