We regularly go into local primary schools to lead assemblies, storytelling, reflective spaces, and RE lessons in line with the curriculum.
We also welcome many schools, Cubs, Brownies and Beavers to our church to discover ‘What Is Church?’ and reflective spaces.

We can come along to your school with our bible story bags and cover all bible stories including the Christmas story, Easter story, parables, miracles, Noah, Daniel with the lions and many more.
These stories can link to school values.
We sit together to share the story and end with ‘wondering’ questions to explore understanding and imagination.

What is Church?
We explore the first church over 2000 years ago and how it has evolved to the church of today.
We do this through film, interactive activities, discussion, treasure hunt and experiences.
Reflective Spaces are fast becoming a nationally sought after experience in schools.
They facilitate a thought provoking opportunity for children to reflect on faith and spirituality in an inclusive, creative, accessible, interactive, calm, safe and fun way.
Presented from a broadly Christian perspective, Reflective Spaces are appropriate for people of all faiths or none, as they encourage children to reflect on various aspects of life: giving thanks, saying sorry, forgiving others, letting go of bad feelings, thinking about others who are less fortunate in this country and across the world, asking BIG questions, being still, giving an opportunity for dreams about the future and much more.
Below are introductions to some Reflective Spaces we have facilitated in the past and how they can assist with meeting SMSC development requirements and Reception, KS1 and KS2 curriculums.
If you would like more information of bringing Reflective Spaces to your school or us hosting you at City Life Church please contact the church office.
