Christ Church Community
In November 2014 we launched our very first ‘Christ Church Community’ afternoon and they have grown in popularity ever since. The afternoons offer a wonderful opportunity for parents, carers, staff, governors and members of the Church community to come together for afternoon tea. Cakes and scones are enjoyed by all and there is always a lovely atmosphere in the dining room and a real sense of community spirit.
Afternoon tea is followed by community Collective Worship in the main hall led by Reverend David. As always our wonderful children lead the singing with their favourite hymns and songs.
We are always grateful to those who come along; for their support in embracing the opportunity to strengthen our links with the Church and for their generous donations to the ‘Water For Life Project’ in Tanzania (in association with Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales.
At our last Christ Church Community afternoon we took the opportunity to ask those attending what Christ Church Community afternoons meant to them. This is what they said:
“Christ Church Community Afternoons means where family and friends get together to support the community.”
“An ideal opportunity to integrate with the wider Church community.”
“I think it’s an excellent way of integrating the whole community and it’s always a pleasure to share the service with the children. The cakes are good too!”
“Getting involved in my local community, meeting people and making new friends.”
