GenR8 launches Easter outreach in W Norfolk

genR8 puppet 385 ARChristian Children’s Outreach organisation GenR8 will be running their summer tour in schools across West Norfolk throughout March.

Established   in   the   Cambridge   area   in 2001, GenR8 came to Norfolk in 2008 through the Crowns Trust. Now equally accepted in West Norfolk as a reliable and safe product by many schools GenR8 presents the gospel in a fun, lively, relevant and educational way to primary school-aged children, working in partnership with local Churches, and at the same time enabling and equipping local Christian volunteers.

The Easter tour will visit 40 schools throughout West Norfolk,  telling the Easter story in fun sketches, songs, poems, and puppets. Each presentation lasts around half an hour, and will aim to help children understand that they all have unique gifts & talents, and that they are all cared for by a loving Father. 


The session starts with a lively introduction, including the wake up call and GenR8 ‘waves’. There are further sketches, including comedy, puppets, stories, and the Action song. The presentation concludes with the serious message.


We are always greeted by enthusiasm and excitement when we return to a school we have visited fairly recently” said Brian Griffin from GenR8’s West Norfolk team. “I believe it is because we present an action packed, thought-provoking, fast-moving, fun-filled half hour quite unlike any other school assembly time. Retaining children’s concentration is every school-teacher’s challenge, yet  we find that all children - even those young and disaffected,  manage our  full 30 minute presentation with very little difficulty. Even the adults watching remain as equally absorbed as the children!”


The Easter, which will run throughout March, includes schools in Clenchwarton, Ashwicken,  Runcton Holme, Brancaster, Kings Lynn, Tilney St Lawrence, Terrington, St Germans, Heacham, Snettisham,  Bircham, North and South Wootton, West Walton, Hunstanton, Marshland St James, Middleton, Dersingham, Narborough, Watlington, Ingoldisthorpe, Sandringham & West Newton, Gayton, Ashwicken, Tilney All Saints and Docking.
