Footwashing, dancing, drama & singing

The Junior Faith Group at St James's School planned this morning's end of term service in the church.

We had dancers, a drama, a brilliant song by the school Gospel choir, and the members of the Faith Group led and narrated the service, at which we sung some favourite songs, and remembered how on the first Maundy Thursday, Jesus washed the disciples feet.

It was an upside down kind of day when the King of Kings and Lord of Lords took the place of a servant. Translating that to Bermondsey in 2015, the Junior Faith Group came up with the idea of Mrs Willis (right) and Miss Mailey, our Head and Deputy Head, doing something very similar. It was a special moment, and Paul reminded us that Jesus did the first foot washing as a kind of example of how we should serve one another.

It was a great service, and here from the school Twitter account, are some more photos of the occasion:
