Holiday Bible Club
During the summer holidays we hold a week of play and praise for children of primary school age at Knightlow School. Daily worship, craft activities and outdoor play all follow a theme. Over recent years between 30 and 40 children have attended. These sessions are popular with both children and parents and feedback has been extremely positive. A dedicated group of committed adults supervise.
Knightlow C of E Primary School
Everyone at Knightlow C of E Primary School feels privileged to be a part of the Draycote Benefice and to be able to work in partnership with our foundation governors, the worship team, members of the church congregations and the local communities for the benefit of our children. As a single form entry village school, many of our families live within the Draycote parishes and the school has a very positive and fruitful relationship with the church, which we would really hope to continue and build upon.
For us, the links with the church run deeper than just maintaining our Christian character and are founded on a strong relationship between us the incumbent and the worship team from the benefice. This relationship allows us to show the children what faith can mean in their lives, and incorporates acts of worship, learning about Christianity in action, delivering a rich and imaginative R.E. curriculum, seeing the church as a place for all people and engaging in creative prayer and reflection.
The children and the staff are able to get to know their vicar as someone who is interested in them and who is able to demonstrate what it means to be a practising Christian. They love to learn more about the Bible, and we try to seek different opportunities for them to build their understanding and express their own thoughts and beliefs openly and honestly. During our vacancy our enthusiastic team are maintaining and reinforcing this important link.
