Earlier this week in the School Chapel, local representatives of Gideons International (Rick and Helen Hillard – pictured) presented year 7 pupils with New Testaments.
Rick shared some of his life story and reflections on working for the Gideons and in Church leadership. He also told some inspiring stories of how the bible and faith have transformed people’s lives including the story of Nicky Cruz, a well known Christian evangelist and Church leader who, prior to his conversion, had been the leader of a New York City gang.
Revd Jonathon commented “The work of the Gideons is truly inspiring and it was a great privilege to welcome Rick and Helen to our school chapel. The aim of the Gideons is to give everyone the opportunity to have access to a bible and to read it for themselves, perhaps for the first time and to discover God in a personal way. Thank you to them for their ongoing ministry and to the new testaments they so generously gave to our year 7 pupils.”
