Christmas Journey is a multi-sensory, interactive storytelling experience for Year 1 pupils, that links to the Newham Agreed Syllabus.
2019 was our most successful ever - hosting 30 local schools, across 7 churches and welcomes over 2000 pupils to discover the authentic Christmas Story and what Jesus' birth means to Christians as our King, our God and our Saviour, and God's greatest gift to mankind.
THIS YEAR WE ARE DOING THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY!
CJ 2020 Overview
We will be hosting a live online video event, supported by 3 pre-recorded interactive workshops so schools can participate in their classroom. All Live and Prerecorded workshops will be interactive and hosted by local Christians from their churches in your community.
All the usual workshops and learning content will be in place, only the format will be different.
There will be 3 sessions across the day, lasting for approximately 1 hour 15 mins. (2 x AM - 9:15 and 10:50 and 1 x PM at 1:00)
