We are really pleased to be able to work with all four of the schools in our town.
We work closely with the staff and students at Holy Trinity, offering them Chaplaincy support when they require it, as well as welcoming them into church for various services and events, including the once a month joint craft session with Signpost. Once a week a member of our church family or a leader from another local church leads Collective Worship in the school and we also work closely with the school to facilitate a prayer day once a year.
We're really pleased to visit Lowe's Wong Infants occasionally to lead their assemblies.
We support the team with others from local churches who help to run Christian Club on Monday lunchtimes (which is open to all children at the school) and Ignite (for Year 5 & 6) after school on Mondays. Both groups aim to give children an opportunity to explore faith in a fun, engaging and age-appropriate way.
We have a good relationship with the Minster School and are regularly there doing all sorts. We are involved in leading Acts of Worship 2-3 times a term and visit individual tutor times. We help to run Explore, which sets up like a market stall in the Heart Space to engage with all students through games, sweets, ethical discussions, and crafts. We help with the Confirmation preparation, as well as prayer week and getting involved in R.E lessons on occasion and other events that come up throughout the year! We have recently set up a Film and Philosophy after school club, aiming to engage young people with world issues through the medium of film.
