Hello my name is Aisling McMullan and I am a schools intern, based in North Down and Newtownards.
My highlight of the month would be doing a prayer space in St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church for Clandeboye Primary School. This was an opportunity for children to learn how to pray in creative ways, as part of the RE curriculum for schools. We were able to teach around 350 children how to pray anytime, anywhere and about anything. The prayer space was based around the Lord’s Prayer with different stations to encourage the children to say sorry and forgive, write down their worries, to be still and also to reflect on their friends, family and the world.
This was an amazing week, filled with so many stories and opportunities to work alongside an amazing bunch of volunteers, Clandeboye Primary and also St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church.
