Latchingdon: Christ Church
Christ Church, Latchingdon is a Gothic revival church, dating to 1856 and built to the designs of J P St Aubyn. It became a Grade II Listed Building as of 15th January 2020.
There is currently no Parish Priest but the Church Wardens are Mrs Moir Gunfield and Mrs Nonnie Bridge and the Secretary is Mrs Maggie Minister.
We have close links with the Church which is within a 2 minute walk from the school and the whole school attends the Church for services at Harvest Festival, Christmas and Easter. Due to the space within the Church we invite parents/carers from different classes so they all have an opportunity, during the year, to attend a service.
As a Church of England Primary School our assemblies and services at the Church are very important to us. For over 10 years a group of KS2 children have taken part in a very successful Worship Group. They meet about once a month, at lunchtime, to share ideas and raise money for charitable organisations. During 2019/2020 they organised a sponsored walk which raised over £900 for new reading books for the school.
Currently we have 20 members and we are often joined by Mrs Minister, from Messy Church.
