St. Werburgh's C.E. Primary School are very proud to have very close links with our lovely church, St. Werburgh's, Kingsley.
The children love going to celebrate in their church and many special services take place which are open to our whole school family and parishioners.
We are proud to work with Rev. Sue Symons as part of our beautiful church, wonderful school and lovely Parish families.
Mrs Elaine Sales is an important part of both our church and school - leading both choirs in song.
Josie Aallun is another very special part of church and school and welcomes the children to church and guides us in prayer.
During this period where Covid-19 is impacting on so many of our lives, you can still join Rev Sue and Josie in Prayer and Services through YouTube. To watch the latest Service from the safety of your own home, please visit the church website: www.stwerburghschurchkingsley.org.uk
Palm Sunday and Holy Week
School were delighted to receive Palm Crosses for all of the children and staff to keep, to mark Palm Sunday - the start of Holy Week. Many thanks to Rev Sue for sharing these with us.
Open Letter from The Church of England
As a proud church school, we know the importance of prayer in our lives. In an open letter, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York invite everyone across the country - whether they have faith or not - to pause, reflect on the pandemic, and to pray.
The Archbishops give thanks for NHS and social care staff, who they describe as “a blessing and lifeline for our nation”; for clergy; other frontline workers; and “so many good neighbours”. They give thanks for the development of vaccines and reiterate a call to everyone to take the vaccine when it is offered.
They also urge people to support each other both by following the guidelines to limit the spread of the virus, and in practical ways, reaching out in care and kindness.

Harvest Festival in Church 2020
Our wonderful church of St. Werburgh’s is delighted to be hosting a Harvest Festival Celebration. Church will be open from 1.00-4.00pm on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October, with a special Service at 11.00am on Sunday. There will also be pictures created by local artists.
Any donations of non-perishable food may be brought along, which will be stored and then passed to the Women’s Refuge.
Rev. Sue led the children and staff in a lovely 'virtual' Harvest Service in school on Thursday 8th October 2020.
Whilst remaining in their classrooms, children shared their artwork (see below), in addition to planting seeds, reading a parable, and writing prayers to celebrate this special occasion. Mr Ratcliffe also joined us by video link too. Although it would have been lovely to share the Service in church with parents/carers and other family members, it was a wonderful celebration in which the children read beautifully. Parents/carers have been kindly donating items which, following a period of quarantine, will be donated to local good causes.
...love God, love one another.
