The congregation of All Saints Church have collected enough funds to donate a new Bible to every child leaving Year 6 at All Saints Church of England Primary School. The bibles will be presented by the Rector and by the Chair of Governors, foundation governor Steve Smith, at the school’s end-of-term “Leavers’ Service” in church. Over £500 has been raised through an appeal and retiring collection at recent Sunday services.
Rector Canon David Hodgson said: ” We want every child leaving the school to have access to this vitally important book, the Bible. The edition chosen for presentation is a special format Good News Bible -Youth edition. As well as the accessible Good News version it includes information on each book of the Bible, interactive elements for readers to engage more deeply and even links to a special playlist of YouTube videos. A big thank you to the congregation for making this possible.”
