Welcome to our GIFT Team
We are the 'Growing in Faith Together Team'
St Edmund's GIFT Team is led by Mrs Brookes.
We are missionary disciples sent to spread the Word of God throughout the school and the school community.
During the month of October, The GIFT team ran a prayer group during lunch times where children from KS2 were able to pray the Rosary.
The GIFT Team were invited to celebrate the 'Year of the Word' along with other parishes within St John's Deanery. During their morning celebration, the children took part in a non-eucharistic liturgy with other GIFT Team groups. The children had to prepare and deliver a prayer station around the theme of 'The Sermon Upon the Mount' The Gift Team also enjoyed praying at the prayer stations set up by other schools.
On Ash Wednesday, the GIFT Team lead the school into the season of Lent by leading a Liturgy which focused upon how we can make a change in our lives during Lent, letting Jesus into hearts to help us support our local community and the wider world we live in.
During the collective worship, the GIFT Team introduced the fund raising event that our school is going to take part in during Lent. Over Lent, each class will collect silver coins to create a 'Silver Trail' at the beginning of Holy Week. All donations will be split between CARITAS and CAFOD which are two charities close to our hearts.
