Event - Lobby and Worship Area Opening

1 February 2016

Monday 1st February was a very special occasion at Christ Church CE Primary School. The new Bishop of Aston, Anne Hollinghurst and a wide number of honoured guests from the Christ Church family (which included parents, local faith leaders, head teachers from the Diocese, Reverend Richard our Chair of Governors and Sarah Smith, Director of Education for the Birmingham Diocese) opened our brand new lobby and worship area. The lobby and worship area capture our unique Christian ethos and celebrate our core Christian values – Hope, Faith, Charity and Patience.

We were all proud that Bishop Ann could ‘cut the ribbon’ and open our new special areas and we celebrated this with refreshments and speeches from key children from our ‘Faith Team’.

After our guests had left, Bishop Anne stayed and carried out collective worship with our Faith Team and Reverend Richard. Later in the morning Bishop Anne and Revered Richard were accompanied on a tour of the school.
