Weekly Services 2021/22
What a wonderful day of hope! We started our new school year with this special service to share our hopes for the coming year. The children wrote prayers for themselves as individuals, for our school, the church and the world. We shared these and enjoyed praising God together. Later on, we also enjoyed magnificent performances by the choir and KS1 who entertained us with the Ugly Bug Ball.
We were delighted to be back at St Mary’s to celebrate this wonderful festival. We were treated to a special bug edition of the classical tale, The Enormous Turnip by Year 2. It was great to be back in the church together and give thanks to God for providing for our needs. We were overwhelmed with food donations and these were gratefully received by the Manna Centre at London Bridge, who provide food and shelter for the homeless in London. Thank you for your generosity.

KS2 will be learning more about family through looking into Jesus’ relationships whilst he was on earth.
