Children from an east Dorset school were given a special insight into the history and modern day activities of a local church.
And the experience took the youngsters on an interactive journey around the church building to discover what Christians do.
During their visit the children took part in a range of activities at different stations that had been laid on by the church.
These included ‘the church welcomes’ (baptism), ‘the church teaches’ (bible), ‘the church prays’, ‘the church serves’, ‘the church celebrates’ (communion), and ‘the church shares’ (out into the world).
Headteacher Andrew Turrall, said: “We are very grateful to St Michael’s Church for providing our children with a memorable experience.
“They learned so much about the day to day workings of a church and also how Christians live and worship.
“The visit was fun, engaging and very interesting and has really enhanced their religious studies learning.”
