St George’s welcomes The Bishop of Tonbridge 

The children were delighted to be visited by the Bishop of Tonbridge, Mr Simon Burton-Jones, who led Worship and then visited each class answering our questions.

The top question had to be where was his Miter (hat) and Crosier (staff) – which he promises to bring next time he visits!

Other questions he was asked by the children included:

Question“What do Bishops do – where do you have to go in your work?” 

Reply I work in a section of Kent that has 262 Church of England churches, I work within communities and tour schools offering lots of help and support. 

Question:  “As a Bishop how do you represent God?” 

Reply:  Try to be as like God as you can as a person.
