‘All Saints’ C of E Primary School and Church were both established towards the end of the last century. Today this is a mutually enriching relationship with the school coming to worship in the church e.g. the Christmas and Leavers’ services, and the church helping at the school e.g. with collective worship and school governance. The school and the church reach out to the wider community together, especially with our Christmas and Summer Fayres, and through the Friends’ organisation.
The broad Christian ethos welcomes people of all faiths and none, and gives an underpinning to our values: love in action; courage; and respect.’ quoted by Rector Paul Kennedy, who resigned April 2017.
New Reverend for All Saints Church, 12th November 2017
We are absolutely delighted with the appointment of Reverend Michael Griffiths who will be taking up his post in July 2018. The School was delighted to be asked by Bishop David of Basingstoke to help interview Reverend Mike. The DARTS (School Council) set him some challenging questions, gave him a tour of the school and sent feedback to the interview panel at the Church. The whole school really enjoyed Rev. Mike's Worship about 'The Good Samaritan' which linked to our value of respect in action. They were in awe of his amzing guitar playing and singing too.
We look forward to working with Rev. Mike in the future.
For further information about how the school develops Christian values and spirituality please see the healthy and active page (Our school) where a section focuses on collective worship.
