RE and Assemblies
Our Children and family worker, Marcus Jones, is available to schools to help with delivery of specific lessons in the RE curriculum. Lesson will be tailor made to the class needs and will be interactive and sensitive to those from all faiths and to those with none. Marcus is also happy to consider requests for assistance with activities not directly related to the Christian faith.

Schools are welcome for educational visits in all of our churches. For more information please contact Elizabeth Wild or Marcus Jones.
School Study Days at St Endellion
School parties are invited to visit St Endellion for an Educational Study Day.
The children are introduced to the main features of the church and then they break into study groups.
Half of the class will look at the colours of the church year, the Vestments and the items used in the celebration of the Eucharist ‘play’ the organ ring the bells. The other half go into the Church Hall to paint or to do some 3D craft work which can be taken back to school. After a break at mid morning the groups swap so that everyone has a chance to do everything.
For schools who wish to stay for the afternoon there is a chance to do some creative writing. All leaders are teachers or members of the clergy.
These days are suitable mainly for Key Stage 2 pupils and are proving popular.
