We enjoy close links with Holy Trinity Church.
Every Christmas, the whole school gathers there for our Carol Service led by the Holy Trinity congregation. The children enjoy the singing and drama. We also enjoy visiting St Barnabas at other times during the year.
Holy Trinity, Cleeve
St Barnabas, Claverham
St Mary's, Yatton
At other times, we hold special services in school and invite our families as well as members of the local churches, eg Blessing our new Reception children, Harvest worship, Easter Worship and our Y6 Leaver’s Service.
Members of the local congregation provide us with a Harvest loaf, an Advent Wreath and an Easter Garden.
Members of the Church Team regularly contribute to school life, by leading Collective Worship and helping with the RE curriculum.
Owl, Robin and Kestrels visit to St Barnabas
We enjoyed our walk and visit to St Barnabas Church. Rev Jo shared the story of when Mary visited Jesus’ tomb and he appeared to her. We enjoyed listening to the story and creating our own pictures to show Mary and Jesus in the garden.
Robin and Kestrel Classes enjoyed their visit to St Barnabas where Rev. Jo shared some special books and special stories from the bible with us.
St Barnabas Church Visit
Owl class walked to St Barnabas Church in Claverham.
Rev Jo performed a mock baptism for the children. The children were the congregation and some of the children godparents and parents.
It supported the RE unit of 'Where do we belong?'
They had been learning about baptisms in class and had even written reflective writing about belonging in our families.
