Our Minister Andrew and Angela (Family Focus) have been invited to take the morning assembly on a regular basis every 4 weeks. They also contribute to seasonal celebrations such as Christmas and harvest, are invited to the Christmas productions.
The Reception class, as part of their studies, visit us on a yearly basis just before Christmas. We provide them with refreshments whilst they familiarise themselves with the "church furniture" and Angela has the opportunity to talk to them about the real meaning of Christmas, why people come to church, what we do, and to model simple prayer with them.
There are plans to increase our involvement and develop the relationship between the church and the school. For example there is talk of an inter-generational project, using the talents of our more senior members, such as cooking, gardening and reading stories, in working with the children with Additional Needs in their purpose built unit.
Andrew has also been interviewed for the school newspaper!
