Kerry has been with us for just over a month and we caught up with her and asked her how she has been getting on.
“The month has flown by and my feet have barely touched the ground but it’s been great getting to know everyone here at the City Mission in the different teams.
Harvest time has fully arrived and the office is buzzing, in order get to know the schools better, I’ve been going into some of the Harvest assemblies to say thank you to the children. Receiving food from them for the Brighton Food Bank is a joy and its good to let them know that this will all help local people of Brighton and Hove.
Getting to know the areas of Brighton and Hove is all helpful preparation as we are now ready for our Harvest Presentation. We will be performing up to 25 assemblies across the Infant, Junior and Primary schools of Brighton and Hove. There, we will get an opportunity to share a fun Pizza shop sketch that’s engaging and illustrates being thankful and appreciating the food that we have. Hopefully this will enable the school children to grow compassionately for others in greater need.
I was part of the team for the first Prayer Space of the school year which we partner with Off The Fence for. It was a superb week with many children commenting on how they felt entering the Prayer Space, some of these were calm, fun, peaceful, thoughtful and wonderful! It truly was all of those things and more, I look forward to our next one next week.”
