Celebrating the Welsh Bible translators: a special service for schools

St Asaph Translators Service for Schools

The Diocese of St Asaph has released a special bilingual service for schools to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the translation of the Bible into Welsh, an achievement that has had such a significant impact for society and culture in Wales.

The film makes many natural links with local place (cynefin). Seven of the eight translators came from the Diocese of St Asaph, and learners from local church schools offer key contributions to the film, alongside Bishop Gregory and the Very Revd Nigel Williams, among others.

Although structured as a ‘service’ (36 minutes in length), there are helpful section breaks that allow schools to incorporate specific aspects of the film into broader teaching and learning activities for RE (RVE) in the Humanities.

You can access the film here.
