THE WONDERFUL VILLAGE CHURCH OF ST MARY'S, CHARLTON MACKRELL
COLLECTIVE WORSHIP AND OUR CHURCH
Christian values are at the heart of life at Charlton Mackrell School and love certainly makes the world go round here! All children are expected to love their neighbour as Jesus taught us. The children flourish in this loving, family environment.
We benefit from the full support of our village communities and our Parishes, namely our Vicar Alan, who combines with Jenny and the Open the Book team to lead our worship at the beautiful St Mary's Church, Charlton Mackrell every week. It is always a lovely sight to see the whole school walking happily, two by two, across the road to church on Tuesday mornings.
Worship takes place every day. We celebrate all of the Christian festivals here and our Leavers' service at the end of the year is a particular highlight. Many people tell us that they can see just how loved the children are on these occasions and that Charlton Mackrell children are exceedingly lucky children!
Here is a prayer from one of last year's leavers, which sums up how they feel about our school...
Thank you for all the time I have had at my school.
I have made so many memories over the last seven years and I hope I'll make many more at my new school.
I am lost for words beacuse I can't describe how I am feeling right now.
School is a bit like a second home and it feels strange to leave it all behind.
I pray my new school will be like Charlton Mackrell too, in time.
