The Exodus. 

Listen to the story and catch our Godly Play on St Giles Ickenham YouTube channel.




Emma says;

How terrifying to have the Pharaoh’s army chasing after you! And not just that, having to put all your trust in God and walk between the watery walls of the Red Sea. How do you think you would of felt?

We learn from this story just how much God loves and cares for his people, for us. And we an take comfort in knowing that God is with us always.
