Feckenham First School

Feckenham Church, or more correctly, the St John the Baptist Church, in Feckenham has a good association with the school. Regular half termly visits and assemblies are undertaken - linked to the curriculum and the school value that is being promoted. In addition, the school benefits from an Open the Book presentation regularly that illustrates bible stories in an interesting and thought provoking manner.
Each term there is a celebration assembly in the church and each Christmas there is an exceedingly popular Carol Service undertaken by Years Three and Four. Through the Community Group, the school gets involved in good causes such as the Redditch Food Bank, Syrian Refugees or Operation Christmas Child - and many more. The school has also been an active participant in church activities that aid the curriulum being studied. Rememberance Sunday is a good case in point.
The visiting Vicar (CofE) is the Reverend Gary Crellin. He lives in the village and can be contacted by the school if you fancy a chat or have something you would like to talk over. Perhaps a baptism, coming to terms with a situation that is troubling you, a loss or difficulties or even planning a wedding!
The school has recently introducedprayer/worry boxes in order to allow children to offer up prayers or concerns and these are attended to each Monday in assembly. The boxes are regulary checked for well being issues that can be tackled directly in the school.
church 1Our School Prayer
Feckenham is our school
Let peace dwell here
Let the rooms be full of contentment
Let love abide here
Love of one another
Love of mankind
Love of life itself
And love of God
Let us remember
That, as many hands build a house
So many hearts build our school.
tamborineLet us all think for a moment about children in need; especially we remember Mrs Mott's children in Kenya.
Dear God,
Please help us raise lots of money for children in need so that all children get a childhood, a lovely caring home and are able to go to school.
Thank you Lord for all your support,for all the fundraising today and we ask that you show all your love to all children in need today in your world.
