Diocese of Ely, Bishop Stephen visits Ely St Mary’s C of E Junior School

Lent Challenge 2021 is about hope and a future. A future for us all in God’s world. The Rainbow Bird of Hope at Ely St Mary’s C f E Junior School, recently visited by Bishop Stephen, where each individual feather has the hope of children united in a school Rainbow Bird of Hope.
There is much in the world at the moment where hope is needed. Life seems as if it has been put on hold, but God’s love is always there for us all.

This Lent we asked all our school, children, and staff to take part in Bishop Stephen’s Lent Challenge 2021, to know that we live in hope and we live in God. Our Church schools in the Diocese of Ely have created some amazing work as part of the Lent projects. Further work can be seen on the Lent Challenge page.
