Alpington & Bergh Apton C of E VA Primary School

Church Links

Our school serves the parishes of St Mary’s Yelverton and St Peter and St Paul in Bergh Apton. Parents and children attend a variety of churches within the locality with some parents and children attending churches in Norwich. Our incumbent Rev Chris Ellis is a member of the Governing Body, he comes into school regularly to lead and take part in Collective Worship as well as lead services such as Holy Communion for the entire school community.

We enjoy links with both our parish churches, we walk to St Mary’s for our Harvest and Christingle celebrations and transport the children to SS Peter and Paul at Easter. We are fortunate in being able to use the both churches for learning such as RE and local history projects. We also work with both churches on charitable projects such as the Shoebox Service and Norwich Foodbank.

Some children from the school take part in the holiday clubs run from Thurton Church, another church in our benefice.

Members of the benefice come in once a fortnight to deliver Open Book Bible stories to all the children.
