WALKING TO SUPPORT CHRISTIAN AID 2020
(From Oakhill Road)
This walk will take you past five churches.
At each church you are going to answer one or two questions.
Walk down Oakhill Road until you get to Stonelow Road.
When you reach Stonelow Road turn right
Walk along Stonelow Road. When it is safe to do so you need to cross to the left hand side of the road
Eventually you will arrive at the CHURCH OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Walk up to the front door and have a look at what you can see
At the right hand side there is a wooden stand.
➢ What is on top of it ?
➢ Why? What do you think is put in it?
Look at other things you can see. The people in this church like to help other people.
➢ They can't go to church at the moment but if they could what would they be collecting to give to others?
Time to move on now so walk along to the end of Stonelow Road and turn right up Green Lane. You will have to cross the road so please take care.
As you walk up Green Lane you will arrive at ST.PAUL'S METHODIST CHURCH.
Look at the notice boards.
➢ One of them has a poster on it. What does it say on the poster? Write this down.
This year St. Paul's had planned lots of celebrations.
➢ Can you see anything that tells you what they will still be celebrating when they can go back to church?
Moving on time again so take care as you leave the church and go walking up Green Lane to the top. At some stage you need to be on the right hand side . At the very top turn right on to Cross Lane and arrive at the WESLEYAN REFORM CHURCH.
➢ Look very carefully and find out when the church was built
➢ If the church was having a service on this Sunday what time would people be going to church?
Time to move on again. As you leave the church turn right and then walk down the hill into Coal Aston and keep right along Eckington Road. You will need at some point to cross to the left hand side of the road so that you arrive at COAL ASTON METHODIST CHURCH (you know this one)
Like other churches the people here like to help other people.
➢ What is the special machine on the church wall called?
➢ What is it used for?
Whilst you have not been able to go to school lots of people have put special things in their windows to encourage people.
➢ Is there a 'special thing' here?
➢ What is it?
➢ Why do you think it was chosen?
Time to move again. Cross carefully over the road and go up Stone Road and then down Bents Lane until you come to Falcon Road. Turn left on Falcon Road and walk past your school but stop at ST. PHILIP'S CHURCH.
Look carefully at the noticeboard.
➢ What does it say that makes you think that people would feel happy and comfortable there?
➢ What can some people do at St Philip's on Mondays (but not every week)?
