St Mary’s Mucklestone Children’s Church Club

We meet every Wednesday in term-time, for games, drama, songs and activities around a Bible story and is open to all pupils from St Mary’s – no charge is made as the cost is covered by St Mary’s PCC.

We aim to strengthen the links between St Mary’s School and Church, and encourage the church of the future.

The children are warmly invited to take part in the monthly Family Services held in the church, but there is no pressure to do so.

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 on Tuesday 15th December and taking them home to use with the Zoom meeting at 4pm on 16th December 2020. Please contact Denise Keen deniseakeen@btinternet.com 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.

To request the Zoom joining instructions please contact the school office on office@st-marys-mucklestone.staffs.sch.uk, 01630 672126 or email me directly.

If for any reason your child is absent from school on Tuesday but would like to take part in the service please contact me and I will arrange to get a Christingle kit to you. Please also let me know by end of school day on Monday if your child would like a speaking part in the service.

Please join us if you can – all very welcome

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.

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.
