Services

Our services are central to the life of the school and are valued by all for the contribution they make to our Christian ethos.  Our services also have a positive impact on our studentsí spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. At the beginning of the school year and  at the end of each term we have a whole school service at Holy Trinity Church. In addition we celebrate and serve others through our Harvest Festival.  Lent is also a special time for our community, marked by a daily Lent challenge and weekly reflections.


The following services are held during the school year and on special occasions:

  • Beginning of school year church service

  • St Martinís Day Eucharist church service

  • Christingle Service (in school)

  • A service of Nine Lessons and Carols

  • Ash Wednesday service held in school

  • Easter Eucharist church service

  • Founderís Day Eucharist Service at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Trafalgar Square, during the summer term or held at Holy Trinity

  • A church service is held at the end of each term


At Eucharist/Communion services, students are invited to receive communion if they usually do so in their own churches, alternatively students are invited to receive a blessing.  Click here to read more about our services in the Collective Worship Year Plan 2017-18.  


St Martin's Day Eucharist

Every year we celebrate St Martin's Day with a service of Holy Communion at Holy Trinity church, Trinity Rise, next door to the school.


Harvest Festival

This year, we were thrilled to be able to contribute to a local food Bank. All gifts were donated to the Brixton and West Norwood Food Bank.

 


 

Christingle Service 

This voluntary service was first held in December 2016 and is now part of our Christmas celebrations. Preceded by a Christingle workshop, the students bring their candle to the service and reflect on its symbolic meaning.  



Ash Wednesday

We mark the beginning of Lent with an Ash Wednesday Service. This year, it was a voluntary service that took place in the school hall led by Rev. Richard Dormandy, Vicar of Holy Trinity.

Those who attend the service were given the opportunity to receive ashes, with a cross marked on their forward. The words used when marking the cross with the ashes were ĎRemember you are dust, and to dust shall returní
