St Michael and All Angels Church and the Sir John Moore School have been closely linked for centuries – St Michael’s being the ‘church of the school’.
Today this strong link is continued between the Appleby Group of Churches (part of the Woodfield Team).
A number of members of St Michael’s Church are Governors or School Visitors, and other clergy colleagues visit.
At present we have Reverend Dryden as our local vicar.
The School visits the church regularly throughout the school year to celebrate our Christian festivals and also to use the Church as a valuable resource for our religious education. It is a link we all enjoy and everyone benefits from.
We are very fortunate to have a Childrens' worker, who works as part of the school's pastoral care.
Hello, my name is Ceriann, I am the new children’s worker for the Woodfield team of churches. Appleby Magna is one of the parishes within the Woodfield team and so I as part of my job I am going to be coming in to Sir John Moore School to do assemblies, run a bible based club and a mentoring group with the children. I have been working with children within churches and schools for several years, running afterschool clubs and teaching lessons as well as Sunday schools. I am really looking forward to this opportunity to work in Sir John Moore School.
