In October 2018, Jagannath class visited St Alban’s Cathedral to learn about its history and the Christian faith.
The children learnt how St Alban was a Romano-British citizen who was inspired by the Christian teachings introduced to him by a preacher named Amphibalus . They learnt that when the authorities came to punish Amphibalus for illegally preaching Christianity, Alban declared that he was Amphibalus, allowing the preacher to escape and continue his preaching.
Our tour guide explained to the children the different ways in which they worship God in Christianity and the children were able to find similarities in their own worship of God, Krishna.
We all enjoyed seeing the beautiful architecture, including the stained-glass windows, which the children later recreated in their artwork.
