Our second topic of the Year 1 is ‘Belonging’. Our lives are marked by many different experiences of being welcomed into new situations and groups. We recognise the importance of welcome, of feeling comfortable with new situations and belonging to new groups. We belong to families, to work places and to social groupings. Christians believe that everyone is invited to share in the life and work of God through Baptism. The children will have the opportunity to talk about their own experiences of belonging to different groups (school, Beavers, Rainbows, sports clubs etc.), whilst also exploring how through the Sacrament of Baptism we are welcomed into and belong to the family of God and the church family.

Word of God

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

(Matthew 28:19)
