Participation in religious services is associated with numerous aspects of human flourishing, including happiness and life satisfaction, mental and physical health, meaning and purpose, character and virtue, and close social relationships. Our school enjoys strong links with St Bartholomew’s Church, West Pinchbeck. Our services take place at church regularly and we collaborate:
- Liturgical Events in the Church Calendar (Harvest, Remembrance, Christmas, Easter)
- Special Occasions in the life of our School
- Thirsty on a Thursday
- Historical National Events
Our children bring love and hope to elderly members of the village community as well as creating opportunities for the future community to come and worship together. Psalms 145:4 One generation shall praise thy works to another and shall declare thy mighty acts.
