Schools

We are active in the schools in our parishes in many ways.

Clergy take Collective Worship in St Edmundsbury, Sextons Manor, Howard and Tollgate Primary Schools regularly, and the schools use All Saints, St George's and St John's churches for their Harvest Festivals and Carol Services.

We also visit Culford Pre-Prep for reflective storytelling on a fortnightly basis.

 

 

A team from All Saints church go into Sextons Manor Primary to lead 'Open the Book' Collective Worship fortnightly.  This involves acting out a Bible story, unpacking it and encouraging the children to reflect on it for themselves and leading prayer.  The children love it!  It's fun for them and for the adults!

 

Our work in schools is wider than Collective

Worship. Members of the staff team and the

congregations serve on the governing bodies of

schools in the benefice and are dedicated to

achieving the best education for our children. 

Church members contribute to the work of the joint Diocese/Cathedral sponsored Discovery Centre, which includes projects and storytelling in schools across the Diocese.
