In our Religious Education lessons we follow the Come and See Curriculum.
Our topic this week is: Local church/community
We will be looking at the community of the church and how the Christian family, is made up of smaller Christian families called dioceses. Each diocese is led by a bishop and the bishops continue the work of ‘the twelve’ the apostles who continued the work and mission of Jesus. We will be looking at how Jesus is the head of these families, he is the head of the church. There are other Christian families which are not part of the catholic church. We will learn that Ecumenism is the word used for promoting unity among Christian churches, and that one of the final prayers of Jesus was that we all might be one.
Our core vocabulary for this topic:
