8,000 School Children Take Part in ‘Praise Party’

Thousands of school children have taken part in a huge worship event organised by the Diocese of Coventry. Pupils from 76 schools from across the diocese were invited to join 4 worship concerts led by iSingPOP Praise, Chip Kendall and Shell Perris as part of ALIVE 2023. The diocese wanted the children to experience worship in a large setting having gone through the pandemic where they were unable to visit churches or have external groups visit schools. The event saw 9,000 children and parents attend. Speaking about the event, Rt Rev Dr Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry, said: “The Church of England’s vision for education is that children will have ‘life in all its fullness’. “ALIVE 2023 gave thousands of children a chance to sing and dance, listen, laugh and learn, to be loud and to be silent, and discover the fullness of life that comes from being world changers – people who have caught the vision a world of peace, kindness and justice that Jesus saw, and who decide to work with God for a better world for all.”
