Each year, at the start of the academic year, we want to give thanks to God and pray for our local schools and particularly Mobberley Primary School which was founded as a chruch school way back in the 17th century. Mobberley Primary School's aim is for all our pupils to achieve their full potential and to thrive in the modern world, being confident and independent global citizens, with a life-long love of learning, based on the foundation of the core Christian values of respect, perseverance, compassion, friendship, courage and honesty.
We particularly welcome families just starting at the school to join us for this special service
Education Sunday Service

Our celebration of Harvest, begun at our Lammas service in July, comes to a close with our Harvest-Home. We celebrate and give thanks to our farmers, as well as those who work on the sea, to provide our food. Wwe remember also those who do not share in the riches we so enjoy and commit ourselvbes to a fairer world. Last, but not least, we give thanks to God for 'all good gifts around us' and the many ways in which he has blessed us over the year past.
In the morning we celebrate our Harvest Communion service which, in the sharing of the bread and wine, we receive a foretaste of all the blessings that God has prepared for us whilst in the evening we conclude our celebrations with a service of Songs of Praise including readings both biblical and secular on the theme of Autumn and Harvest.
