Rewind to Christmas shines the light of the world into twelve local primary schools

1 December 2015

DSC_0080 (1600x1064)What happens when over two days you bring together more than five hundred school children and a thirty strong pool of MBC volunteers? The answer of course is Rewind.

DSC_0003 (1600x1064) (1600x1064)This year a dozen primary schools responded to our invitation to join us as via a mix of story telling, games, drama and craft we unpack what we as Christians believe to be the true meaning of Christmas.

Using a slightly different format, one which this year sees our real life shepherds and kings sharing their experiences with the children ten at a time there has throughout been a wonderful atmosphere.

DSC_0044 (1600x1315)The schools that attended are: Alwoodley Primary, Wigton Moor, Harewood, St Peters, Allerton Church of England Primary, Moortown, St Matthews, Highfield, Shadwell, Meadowfields and St Pauls… not forgetting Meanwood C of E who will very soon see their own unique production when we take it on tour.

At the end of each of the four, ninety minute sessions teaching staff are asked to fill in an evaluation form; for some this is their first experience of Rewind whilst others must feel like veterans. We have created a link here to some of their comments which we invite you to read.

Once again it’s been a real joy to be able to share our beliefs with these lovely children. A huge thank you to Cas Stoodley for the enormous amount of time and effort she puts into planning this event and of course to our brilliant team of volunteers.
