Year 3 children at Dunmow St Mary's have been working with Reverend Elsie Bouffler of St Mary's Church to create an online Easter service.
The children have written Easter readings and prayers for the service, art and order of service booklets.
Year 3 teachers Miss Rebecca Bussell and Miss Stef Cramer said: “This was a fantastic way for the children to learn more about the Easter story."
Reverend Elsie worshiped outside with Year 3 and received their decorated cairn stones.
The cairn has been built over Lent and the community invited to lay a stone for someone or something lost this year.
Reverend Elsie said: “The bright stones will cause us to stop and reflect on all we have lost this year and also to think about how we can make our world a brighter, better place as we come through this time.”
