Christian Ethos & Religious Education
‘Learning, Achieving, Growing in God’s Love’
Our school community is centred on the love of God, in His Son, Jesus Christ and strengthened by the Holy Spirit. We will be generous and visible people of Jesus Christ, reaching out in love to all, brining hope, aspiration and life in all its fullness to our children.
At St. Mary's we follow the Bedfordshire Syllabus for the major world faiths and Understanding Christianity for all Christian-based units. Our long term plan for RE is attached here for you to see.
Eucharist is held half-termly in the school hall for all children, staff, parents and visitors within the community. Our Eucharist service plays an important role within the life of our school and it is a time when those who have made their First Communion may participate fully in accepting the sacrament of bread. Services begin at 9:30am, usually on the penultimate Friday of each half term. Please check with the school office or on the calendar of this site as our service is subject to change. Everyone is most welcome to attend!
Bishop's Lent Challenge
Each year the Bishop sets a challenge for schools to participate in. This year we managed to achieve Gold by involving our entire community! Here is our certificate:
United Reform Church
In RE, we have been thinking about our links with other places of worship across our town that are of differing Christian denominations.
Here are some photos of our visit to the URC in the town centre.
