Christian Meditation

Maranatha, Come Lord Jesus


Christian Meditation has been introduced as daily practice within the school from Nursery to Year 6, with staff regularly practicing as well as a parent group.  Through Christian Meditation, children , staff and parents meditate upon the Aramaic word ‘Maranatha’ which translates as ‘Come Lord Jesus’. Teachers and children choose the time they'd like to have a Christian Meditation session, they happen in the moment where children feel they would like to spend a few moments of silence with God. 

 All teachers have attended a Christian Meditation Inset, furthering their understanding and expertise in delivering meditation sessions which fully supports children in developing their Spiritual development.
