Parish of Christ the King
Our school is proud to have taken the name from our parish church, which sits on the edge of Clifton Diocese in our home town of Amesbury serving the town and those around it - including the local military regiments. Fr. Saji Mathew would be delighted to welcome you to join the congregation for Mass, timings of which can be found the Christ the King Church website. Here you will not only see some familiar faces from our school community, but get to know wider members of our parish, particularly if you stay for tea and cake available after most Sunday services.
School joins weekday Mass
How wonderful to have been able to join the school for Mass to mark the start of Advent. Pupils from the school presented Advent wreaths, which are present in each of the classrooms, as well as a Jesse Tree and symbols. These show how our school is preparing during the season of Advent. We cannot wait to return to the church for more festive celebrations in our Carol service later this month.
A blessing for the new school year
On Sunday some children from the parish, which included pupils from our school, presented a new set of crucifixes that were blessed by Fr. Saji - which will be displayed in the classrooms at Christ the King. These new crucifixes are not only an important icon to demonstrate our faith, but mark the new beginnings of our school in it's renewed faith journey and strengthened links with our parish.
