Church Links

We have very close links with our neighbouring church, Christchurch Shaw. Rev Jane Palmer is a member of our Governing Body. She is a part of the Shaw School family and regularly takes Collective Worship for us. She also helps us to celebrate when we meet in Church for festivals such as Harvest, Christmas and Easter. These services are a very special part of Shaw School life and there is usually standing room only in the church!

Several members of the Christchurch congregation are also regular visitors, either as reading helpers or as part of our "Open The Book" assembly team. They dress up and act out Bible stories and help to make assemblies come to life.
