They first arrived in Britain around AD787, they raided and pillaged the monastery at Lindisfarne in Northumbria in AD793.

Collective Worship 

Our values for this term are Truthfulness and Trust and the story is about putting trust in God.
Moses and the Burning Bush
Moses was looking after his flock of sheep. One day he was searching for a stray sheep when he saw a bush on fire. The bush was burning but no leaves fell or turned to ash.
He heard a voice.... watch the video clip to find out what happened.
Moses had an incredible job to do. Would you take on a job like this or would you need encouragement?
Did Moses take on the jobs God gave him because he was scared of God or because he believed and trusted him?
