Here in the Benefice, we are very fortunate to have a great relationship with our local Church of England Primary School, Moseley C of E. The information below gives you an idea of some of the ways that we work together:
Godly Play – Godly Play uses symbols, objects and wondering questions with story-telling to encourage children to use their imagination and to deepen their understanding. Godly Play was a new initiative introduced to the Reception class in 2018, and is to be extended to other year groups. Our Associate Vicar and / or Intergenerational Ministry Coordinator run the fortnightly Godly Play sessions.
School Assemblies – whole school assemblies are led by members of the Ministry Team three times per term.
Little Cup of Church – every Tuesday morning during term-time, the Vicar and Intergenerational Ministry Coordinator offer tea and coffee in the school playground, with an opportunity to chat and to write down a prayer request.
School Services in Church – each term based around the major festivals of the church calendar, the school attends St. Mary’s Church during the school day for a service led by a school year group. St. Mary’s also hosts the KS2 Nativity Service and the Y6 Leavers Service on an annual basis.
Y1 & Y2 Choir – our Director of Music runs a choir for children in years 1 and 2 in school. This takes place every Tuesday after school during term-time. All children in these year groups are welcome to attend.
Hymn Practice – our Director of Music also supports hymn practice at school on a Monday morning.
School Governing Body – 7 governing body positions are currently held by members of our congregations.
