St Luke and All Saints, Darrington
St Luke and All Saints church is within easy walking distance from the school. The links between the school and church are very strong: Rev Judd comes into school every week to lead Collective Worship with the children, and the entire school walks to church for special services at regular intervals throughout the year.
The church itself is open every day for visitors to pray, or to sit quietly and enjoy the sacred space. The churchyard is also a beautiful place to visit and enjoy.
The church is a community of people of all ages who enjoy coming together to worship, encourage and support one another, growing in faith and serving the community.
- There is a service of worship at 10:45am every Sunday. Anyone of any age is welcome and coffee and biscuits are served after the service, when everyone is invited to stay for a drink and a chat.
- On the third Sunday of each month, the 9.30am service is a family service, and is well attended by staff and families from the school.
- There is also a service of worship on Thursday mornings at 10:30am.
A greeting from Reverend Adrian:
“Reverend Alex is the star of the show, he is the real boss of Darrington Church and I help him take church services, including weddings, christenings and funerals. I lead collective worship in school most Tuesdays and enjoy being part of the school community. Thinks of a vicar as ‘someone who helps you’ – that’s the job I do.”
