All Cannings School
On Wednesday 8th June the Pastor had an opportunity to visit All Cannings School near Devizes. It was lovely to meet the pupils and to be a part of their assembly. Tom had the privilege of being able to present to each class a Bible on behalf of the Trinitarian Bible Society Wessex Auxiliary and Maryport Street Baptist Chapel. He was also able to tell the story of Mary Jones the young Welsh girl, who saved her money for 6 years and then walked 25 miles from her home to Bala in Wales.
The Trinitarian Bible Society Wessex Auxiliary has the desire to bring God's Word to as many as would like it. One of the ways of doing this is to invite schools to receive freely Bibles for their pupils. The Society believes that the Bible is the Word of God and is without error and sufficient in its message. Simply the Bible teaches us about God, his Holiness, Justice, Mercy and Grace. It shows us what we are like, we have broken God's Law and deserve eternal punishment for that. It also shows us what God has done in salvation by sending the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God to die in the place of sinners. He would take their penalty, give them his righteousness and provide eternal life to as many as believe.
It was a joy to be with the school and trust that further visits may be possible in the future.
