Near to Highnam Academy is Holy Innocents Church. It is a Grade I Listed Building and one of the most significant Victorian churches in the country. Highnam Academy have special links with the church and often perform concerts and hold services in the church. Recently, we held our Harvest Festival and Christmas Key Stage Two Carol Service there.
Messy Church is an after school club run by our friends associated with Highnam Church. Parent, siblings and pupils join together for a 'messy' time learning from the Bible. Messy Church is a different way of 'being church'. The values shared are about being Christ-centred, for all ages and based on creativity, hospitality and celebration.
If you haven't been along yet look out for the next Messy Church on the Academy newsletter.
The Experience Journeys are an exciting way to share the story of the Christian faith and to engage children in the events and celebrations of major Christian festivals. Children travel around stations set up in the church building or outdoor space, and have opportunities to respond through multi-sensory activities.
We have experienced: Easter, Christmas and Church hosted kindly by our friends at Highnam Church.
This year we are working with Psalms to lead our RE / PE sessions to introduce our new RE topics each term. The team work closely with school staff to deliver high quality, thought-provoking sessions.
