At Canon Peter Hall Church of England Primary School, we deeply value our strong links with St Andrew’s Church, Immingham. Reverend Julie Donn regularly leads our Collective Worship in both church and in school for services and festivals such as Harvest, Christingle, Christmas and Easter.
At the following website you can access further information about St. Andrew’s Church.
At our Harvest Service held in Church we thanked God for this year’s harvest and the food we enjoy. Rev Julie talked to us about the ‘food miles’ involving in getting some of our food to us from other countries. As part of the service, children and staff donated items of food which were given to Immingham Food Larder.
On Armistice Day, we held our annual service of remembrance in St. Andrew’s Church led by Rev Julie Donn. We remembered servicemen and women who have died in the wars. Rev. Julie Donn shared stories of local people who have died whilst serving the country at war. As part of the service, we visited some of the war graves reflecting on the great sacrifices made by these local servicemen and women.
Rev Julie led our Christmas Service in school. During this service, we lit our last advent candle on our Advent wreath and retold the Christmas Story. We also sang some of our favourite traditional Christmas Carols.
Our Easter Service was held at St. Andrew’s Church. Within this service, we reflected on the events of Palm Sunday and the days that followed leading upto Jesus’s crucifixion. Within this service, our school choir sang a number of songs.
Canon Peter Hall Church of England Primary School was invited by the Lincoln diocesan team to take part in a newly formed project which is a response to the Diocesan vision ‘A Time to Change Together’ and the newly formed Growing Faith Foundation.
Growing Faith promotes a partnership between the three communities of Church, School and Household to enable the discovery, exploration and growth of faith for all in those communities. The partnership is imagined as intersections of a set of overlapping spheres to find and promote ways to help faith to grow with children, young people and households.
This year, we have worked in partership with Rev Julie Donn to explore ways of developing clear and fruitful interactions between church, school and housholds.
As part of our work with the church, we support the school uniform swap which is held during each school holiday in church. Towards the end of each term, school collects donations from parents of good quality uniform which is no longer used and donates these to the church. School then advertises the dates of the uniform swap events and parents are invited into church to collect good, clean second hand uniform for their children.
Dates of future events are advertised on school newsletters and the church website.
As part of our work with the church, we have established a partnership with Glyn Thomas House Care Home. Each half term the school choir visit the residents in their home to entertain them with some songs. Termly, the care home residents and school choir meet at St Andrew’s church for an afternoon of songs, tea and cake.
We are proud to be part of the Lincoln Anglican Academy Trust more
