“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
Each week, a set of three assembly videos will be sent out to you via the class Teams posts.
These will include a video link from Mrs Harris, Rev Fi Gwynn and the Guildford Diocese Education team. Other resources will be uploaded to this page each week, if you would like more. Please do have a scroll through to see what's here. The children love our prayer space times at school and below you will find some similar activities that you can use at home. These activities aim to help the children to reflect and process some of the feelings that they might be experiencing, during this challenging time.
A message from Rev. Fi Gwynn
Hello to all the wonderful children and parents of Grayswood School,
I hope that you are all keeping safe and well and embracing the challenge of home schooling. It's not easy on anyone - children, parents or teachers! I am really missing seeing all your smiling faces on a Monday morning.
Whatever challenges and difficulties you are facing I want you to know that I am praying for you all. If any of you, adults or children, want to get in touch either by email firstname.lastname@example.org or on the phone 07769 856343 then please do not hesitate.
There are also a lot of wonderful resources on our church page - https://allsaintsgrayswood.org/children/ so do go online and have a look.
I am so looking forward to the time when we can be together again in the school hall - we will raise the roof with our singing at that first assembly!
With much love and prayers for you all.

The children love prayer space at school – We often use the Church or the Forest school for this. It’s a time for the children to be peaceful, thoughtful and reflective. You can create a special space to pray anywhere: outside with a hammock between two trees or perhaps a little tent with twinkly lights, or inside with a battery candle and some flowers. Below you will find some simple activities you can do at home, based on letting go of fears and worries, as well as activities to help us turn our attention to hopes and remembering to think of the things we are grateful for.
"Tough things" Prayer Activity
Put some stones in a box of sand/earth. Lift one of the stones. It is hard. Think of some of the things you find hard at the moment.
Ask God to help you deal with the hard and difficult things and to support you in your difficulties.
Thank God for always being with you as you go through hard and difficult experiences.
