Church and Schools

Article Header


Our three primary schools, Chesterton, Kirtlington and Bletchingdon, are all church schools and we have strong and valued links. Every week of term each school has a collective worship for the whole school which is taken by a member of the benefice ministry team, and each school has regular services in church. Someone from the church is a foundation governor in each school.

The Akeman Benefice is happy to be a supportive presence for our schools. One example of this is that there is a monthly meeting where we pray for them; often this will include using prayers that the children themselves have requested. In each school an annual Prayer Space has been started, for the opportunity to try out creative and different ways of praying, with help from church members.
