SRI Materials Information for Parents

2021

Welcome to 2021. We do not know what it holds but Christians believe that God already knows all about the year.

Do you know if your school is offering SRI in 2021? Why not ask if you are unsure.

We have left the links to the Christmas videos below in case you did not get to see them. The message of Christmas, as told in the Bible, is that God chose to enter the world as a baby, that we might know that God understands us. Christians also believe that the first Christmas shows just how much God loves people. He came to earth, in order that through the events of the first Easter, we could be friends again with God (but more of that later).

Video 1 tells of the birth of Jesus as a human baby

Video 2 tells of the shepherds who were told a Saviour had been born.

Video 3 tells of visitors from far away who came to honour this new king, God with us.
