St Mary’s CE (A) Primary School Worship Policies:
Children’s Church Club December 2020
This is usually a busy and exciting time for our Club with lots of exciting Advent and Christmas activities.
We would normally make two Advent Wreaths – one for church and one for school. This year Mrs Thomas and Mr Furnival will take on the task and each week, will email a photograph of the church Wreath candles being lit to share with the children in school as they light theirs.
Posada figures of Mary and Joseph are usually taken home by the children for a night each – a way of remembering that Jesus was born in a borrowed stable not in a comfortable home like ours. Covid restrictions have prevented this. Instead Mary and Joseph will appear all around Mucklestone – sheltering in a different place each night – see how many times you can spot them!
Christingle – St Mary’s pupils will be making their own Christingles in school and taking them home to bring back to church – or to use at home if the service has to move to Zoom. Please contact Denise Keen firstname.lastname@example.org if your child does not attend St Mary’s but would like to take part in the service, to arrange to receive a Christingle kit.
Harvest Festival – Thursday 15th October 2020
This celebratory service is the time that we give thanks for all of God’s gifts to us and welcome the latest children to the school and church. The children are able to share their research about other Harvests from around the world and perform their newly learned harvest songs.
This year we will be supporting the Market Drayton Foodbank with our donations of food.
Dovedale House, Ilam
21st and 22nd March 2019
Year 5 children were invited by the Bishop of Stafford to join a spiritual retreat, with two other primary schools, for two days. The children took part in many fun activities to put the “Wow!” back in “Worship” and have then lead the worship back at school.
