St Matthews is the partner church to St. Paul’s CE Academy and a number of our families have children at the school.
The relationship between St. Matthews and St. Pauls is hugely important and we have worked hard in the past few years to build and strengthen the partnership between us. Our minister is a regular visitor to the academy and, as well as being a governor, he leads the weekly whole school worship.
Other members of the church family also help in a variety of ways in the life of the academy. Pupils, parents and staff also visit the church building regularly for special services throughout the year.
A small group from the church family visit the school to present the ‘Open the Book’ project. Each presentation takes around 10-15 minutes and offers children and teachers an opportunity to hear the major stories of the Bible.
