We have good links with the schools in Kidlington. Members of the clergy team go into schools and take assemblies, and school groups visit the churches to enhance and support their curriculum. Christmas carol services are held in our buildings and we organise or support BeSpace prayer spaces in two of the local primary schools. We regularly pray for the children, teachers and families in our local community.
As well as the regular activities and groups mentioned here we have also held very popular craft mornings in the school holidays. Although primarily aimed at entertaining local children, we encouraged parents and carers to have a go too. Everyone would go home with an assortment of items they’d made themselves – perhaps a hat or mask, window decoration, harvest mouse, fridge magnet, or card. Unfortunately our previous team of helpers is no longer available so we are looking to recruit new volunteers for what is a busy but extremely satisfying time.
