Links to our Local Church
Jesus said ‘Let the children come to me’.
The Church has long sought to support and nurture children in the love of God and the many Church Schools around the country are a sign of this.
Church St Nicholas CE Primary enjoys close links with the St Andrew’s Church and we are each enriched by the other.
The school pupils, staff and support staff are prayed for regularly in St Andrews church. Sadly, St Andrews do not have a vicar at present after the recent retirement of Father Lawrence. The church is currently undertaking the long process of recruiting a new vicar. The vicar would usually lead an assembly in the school most weeks, often exploring a Bible story with the children in an interactive way.
When major festivals are celebrated throughout the Church Year, the vicar would come to school and be an active participant in a service in which the children participate in word, action and song. Before Father Lawrence retired, the school had worked hard with the church to conduct a termly Holy Eucharist service, which would be led by the vicar.
Throughout the year, there are occasions when different classes will visit the church, usually to enrich their classroom learning.
