Scripture Fellowship Weekend in Lincoln

At 9 am on Saturday 18 July, eight members of Scripture Fellowship went by car to Lincoln.
It was a fitting end to a good year's work that the children in Unit 4 should spend a weekend of activities at Edward King House - The Old Bishop's Palace quite close to the Cathedral.
After seeing their rooms and drinking a welcome glass of orange and for us "grown ups" a drink of coffee we all went to look at Lincoln Castle. The Chapel was very interesting and so where the dungeons and Lucy Tower, which Mrs Seddon braved with the group.
As soon as we had had lunch we went to the Cathedral Library There everyone poured over the Magna Charta [sic]. After that we visited the Cathedral Treasury.
It was a very hot afternoon as we walked down "Steep Hill" to the shops. Children love shopping and these were no exception. After a hearty evening meal we went to the Art Gallery Gardens where there is an enormous hollow, said to have been of volcanic origin, which the children ran and rolled down.
We walked back up the Greestone Steps. Those more active dashed back to re-explore the ruins of the first Bishop's Palace which are ccmplete with dungeons and cellars quite close to Edward King House.
The Rev. Graham Neville who is the Diocesan Director of Education was waiting for us. Our Group went into the Conference Room where we had a very interesting talk and discussion. The theme being I am the Vine and you are the branches.
On Sunday morning we went to Morning Service at the Cathedral. IIeedless to say very impressive and a great experience for us all.
We collected our packed lunches and went to the Bishop Grosseteste College, where the group were met arid shown round by Mrs Fraser.
It was a good weekend, one I hope which will be repeated by an older group next year.
