Church

The local church is St Helen’s in Selston and we have a close working relationship. The church is very old, dating back to the 1100s, but it now has a new extension which is great for hosting community groups and activities. Rev. Fi, the vicar, and Rev. Mina, the curate, are found in school quite often. They lead a weekly collective worship and Rev. Fi is also the chair of the school governors. Eric, Fi’s parrot friend is also a visitor to collective worship where he is often rather cheeky but loves to help the children understand stories from the Bible. The whole school comes to church for special services or “Time Travelling Days” several times a year – especially at Harvest, Christmas and Easter, and it’s exciting to see the church and school communities coming together! We are here for you if you are thinking about weddings, baptism or you have to plan a funeral…or if you ever need a confidential chat to someone with time to listen.
