It is with great pleasure that, on behalf of The Benefice of Christ Church Stone with Oulton with Moddershall, we have been able to present the gift of a special Diamond Jubilee Edition of the New Testament to the Children and staff of the three Church Schools in the Benefice at this time of celebration.
This souvenir Diamond Jubilee edition of the New Testament (NIV) has been created to be given away in schools and churches, and at Diamond Jubilee events.
The New Testament includes 8 pages of images from the Coronation and the Queen’s life, linking her 60 year reign and her Christian faith. There is a suggested reading section with bible references on various topics and a clear guide to help readers.
We are fortunate that money to provide these special Bibles to the school comes by virtue of a gift given for Children & Youth work in memory of our dear friend, Gail Banks, who was well known to the schools.
The over 850 of these New Testaments will be handed to children of Christ Church First School, and Christ Church Academy, Stone, as well as Oulton First School as part of the celebrations of the Queens Diamond Jubilee.
