Form 2 Visit St Andrew’s Church

Posted on: December 6th 2013

Last week the children of Form 2 visited St Andrew’s Church, as part of their Christianity studies. They were warmly greeted by Father Tony Pybus, the Vicar of St Andrew’s, who began by explaining some of the history of the building. It was fascinating to hear that the current structure dates back as recently as 1957, when it was rebuilt following its destruction due to enemy action in 1944. The present church is slightly smaller than its predecessor and was restored without the spire.

Father Tony then pointed out many of the important features of the church, such as the altar, the pulpit, the Stations of the Cross and the lectern. The children were particularly interested to see the font, as they have recently been learning about the ceremony of baptism.

The pupils had prepared some questions and Father Tony was clearly impressed by the quality and depth of these; for example, “Why did Jesus have two dads?” (namely Joseph and God!) as well as “Why did Jesus come to Earth?”The visit really brought the children’s learning to life and made it meaningful for them. Many thanks to Father Tony for so willingly giving up his time to help the pupils of Norfolk House School.
