More than 40 Year 12 school girls are meeting in their lunch hour on Fridays to study the Bible.
This is “Shine,” a student-run group at Thomas Hassall Anglican College, in Middleton Grange, NSW, where Christian students are taking up their responsibility to share the Gospel with others.
Sydney Anglican News reports that the lunchtime group demonstrates what’s truly at the heart of Christian schooling – students being given the Gospel and then being equipped to share it with others.
Rebecca and Amelia Lin, twins in Year 12, are two of Shine’s leaders and have had this role for over a year.
They say the girls have heaps of questions and enjoy learning about Jesus.
The chaplain of the school, Stuart Tye, and other Christian staff ensure students are given support for the studies.
