A number of activities have taken place over the past weekend in which the children of Kentish Town have remembered those who have fallen in War and prayed for peace.
This weekend is the one hundredth anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that brought the First World War to its end.
Year Six from Kentish Town CE Primary School went on Friday to a special service held at St Paul’s Cathedral. They joined several thousand other school children from all over London. We were urged to be agents of peace and reconciliation in our world.
Later on that day, Messy Church took place back at school. There, our younger children reflected on this weekend of Remembrance by creating a map of peace. We placed post-it notes and candles on parts of the globe we wanted to pray for. We thought about conflicts in the past, places where there is violence now, and countries which are experiencing political or economic problems. We also prayed for our own relatives an friends who live abroad.
In our other activities, we also made paper poppies, created bracelets with words reminding us of peace, and thought about the differences between he world of 100 years ago and today by looking at pictures from that time.
