Rydal Penrhos continued its embrace of the digital age with another special event throughout the Senior School site last week.
The Reverend Nick Sissons once again hosted the iChapel on Friday, May 11, which was based on the theme of movement.
He was joined by a special guest in the form of the Reverend Rob Beamish from Princess Drive Baptist, who also visited the school to participate in the interactive event.
Rev’d Sissons began proceedings from a river in Fairy Glen, Old Colwyn, where he outlined that everything flows and is in flux, before moving on to the hymn All Creatures of our God and King, which was sung by Director of Music Pete Williams.
This was followed by a segment from Rev’d Beamish, who linked Fair Trade Day and the ascension of Jesus Christ to the topic of movement, before outlining how movement is a force for good following the tragedy at a garment factory in Bangladesh.
Rev’d Beamish then enlisted the help of his dog Ralph to show how things have to first go away to come back, as was the case with Jesus Christ and his initial crucifixion.
There was also a contribution from Rydal Penrhos’ choir, who sang the Simon and Garfunkel hit ‘Like a Bridge over Troubled Water’ before Rev’d Sissons concluded the iChapel with a short prayer.
The iChapel was filmed and produced by Network and Services manager Gareth Robinson and proved to be another huge hit with staff and pupils.
