Outreach to St. Brendan's School, Heretaunga

Junior and Middle Classes

A group of 13 members of the ICPE community experienced a blessed outreach for 80 of St. Brendan's School Junior class students and 153 Middle class students on the 2nd and 3rd of December 2015, with theme of the value of God's love.

The sessions began with action songs that were lively and full of fun. Skits that accompanied the teaching in order to reinforce the themes were presented. Accompanied thus capturing the attention of the children. An activity sheet, then, was given to each child at every session for them to take home to do those activities with their parents and to help them remember the points that they have learnt.

The children were very excited to spend their time with us, and responded with much enthusiasm and enjoyed the sessions very much

Senior Classes

From the 4th to 5th December 2015 a team of 14 members from ICPE Mission New Zealand headed out to St. Brendan’s School to lead a seminar on ‘Leadership & Stewardship’ for Year 7 and 8.

The action songs and games helped the students to warm up and open their hearts to receive all that the Lord wanted to give them through us. One particular skit conveyed a powerful message on the unique gift each one of us is to one another and was followed by a teaching on Leadership and Stewardship. The group discussion that followed evoked a wonderful time of sharing as each of the students in their little sharing groups were able to express their thoughts on the principles of good leadership and stewardship as children of God. On the whole, the students gained deep insight on their leadership qualities and gained an understanding of who they are in the eyes of God.
