Every week, we deliver our 45 minute Flagship Assemblies to schools in Harlow and the surrounding areas. We debunk the myth that Christianity is boring by bringing Bible stories vividly to life.
Our assembly team consists of people who have experience in drama, singing, dance and puppets, as well as people who had no prior experience apart from having a heart for schools ministry. We help our volunteers to grow in confidence, by writing parts that match their skills and then encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone to develop these skills further.
We have found that children really engage with puppets, so are always looking for people interested in learning how to become a puppeteer (training provided).
Most of our assemblies take place on a Tuesday morning, however as our ministry grows we are increasingly putting on two assemblies a week, allowing opportunities for those with limited availability to share roles with other members of the team. We normally require our assembly team to be available before the assembly for set up and afterwards for pack down. We also like to spend time together praying before and after an assembly, however we understand this isn’t always possible, especially if you are a parent and have to drop off/pick up your children from school.
If you think the assemblies’ team might be for you, we would love to arrange for you to see one in action!
