Minecraft being used to share Bible stories

The video game Minecraft is being used to help deliver collective worship to young game players.

The Revd Becky Dyball, Rector at All Saints Sawtry, St. Nicholas Glatton, St. Giles Holme with Conington is using the game as a new way to share Bible stories.

Recently, and with the help of her family, Becky also added Bishop Stephen into the game.

Becky told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire that; "The idea... came from a want to try to engage with the children... and excite them about collective worship.

The Right Revd Stephen Conway, Bishop of Ely, added: "I am so pleased to have participated in a new way to share Bible stories and the good news of Jesus in this way.

"It is an excellent resource for collective worship in our schools which I commend warmly."

What an imaginative way to engage with younger generations!
