Visit of St Annes College Children to The Drive 04/02/2020

We were pleased, on Tuesday this week, to welcome Class 2 at St. Anne’s College Junior School to The Drive.

In RE lessons they are exploring the features, similarities and differences in places of worship of different faiths. They have already visited a local Synagogue and Hindu Temple and their final visit is to a Mosque next week.

The Reverend Dr. Val Ogden is a mission partner in Fiji.  She is the Director of Theological Education by Extension at the Pacific Theological College and gave a presentation at The Drive about Mission in Fiji and the many ways in which she engages with the local community.
