Learning more about the Christian faith
All parents are welcome to attend regular school Eucharist services which are held at St. Mary’s church, Brighstone – see the Buzz for further details.
All pupils are invited to join a group which meets weekly after school in the spring term to explore the Christian faith. For some this might lead to Confirmation. For further information, please click on the link below.

Rev’d. Linda Bushell, Local Minister for Shorwell
Peter Johnson, Reader for Brighstone
Andy Dorning (SWAY Project Leader)
Andy Evans (YTP)
