Work with Schools

We have regular visits to our churches from groups of children from Cavendish Road, Barlow Hall and Old Moat Primary Schools. This year children from Cavendish Road visited Christ Church to learn about the War Memorial as part of their First World War project.  We’ve also helped children explore what happens in a church building, and the special Christian festivals of Christmas, Easter and Harvest.  Over the past weeks we have ‘Experienced Easter’ with around 200 children from Barlow Hall School and Old Moat School.  Many thanks to all involved in this.

Christ Church – in the week before Christmas  90 Reception children  from Cavendish Road visited our church to discover it’s history, explore the building and dress up in vestments.   We ended our time together by listening to the Christmas Story with the help of our knitted nativity.
