Inspirational students at North Warwickshire & South Leicestershire College

Students, Staff and Governors welcomed Archbishop Justin to their campus in Nuneaton.  He was met by the college nursery children and entertained by a student choir.  He was given the chance to try some floristry techniques and was given a demonstration of hairdressing  and a well earned massage by some adult students.

Down on the farm

A relaxing evening as Archbishop Justin led our worship in a barn. He spoke on the passage about the Prodigal Son. Music  was heard from Paul Bell.

It was great to be joined by Farming Community Network,  a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times.

An opportunity of great fellowship as local churches met at Highfield Farm in Frankton this evening.

He also took part in a debate on the relationship between religion in war with Key Stage Three students. He then met Key Stage Five Ethics students who questioned him and MP Jeremy Wright about religion, morality and law. At the end of the visit Archbishop Justin made a personal donation to the charity Make A Wish, the chosen charity for the college’s charity week.
