The Church and Community
Our school is situated within the North Hampshire Downs Benefice. We are very proud of the strong links we have built with the Benefice team in various ways:
Visits to Church
We visit All Saints Church in Long Sutton 3 times per year, for our Harvest Festival, Christingle Service and Easter Service. In addition, our Year 6 children make a pilgrimage to St Andrew's Church in South Warnborough every July, walking across the local fields and arriving at the church for bell ringing, a quiz and a very special Leavers' Service.
We are proud to host Messy Church once per term in our school hall. Helen Chatfield (Youth Pastor) and her team offer lots of fun ways to worship and engage with a Bible theme trough fun, creative activities.
In September 2019 we launched our new Community Worship, which takes place every Thursday at 2.30pm in school. Our worship leaders lead this very special time, to which members of the local community are warmly invited.
Our daily acts of Worship are special times for us, when we come together to engage with Christian values and Bible stories and reflect on how these values and the teachigns of Jesus can impact on our own lives. During the Autumn Term 2019, our weekly themes are inspired by Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and The Beatitudes. Find out more about Collective Worship at our school in our Collective Worship Policy (in the Policies section) and take a look at our current slides which support this term's theme:
