WOW Church Summer Presentation to the Diocese, by Mrs Brandwood

Date: 12th Jul 2024 @ 4:00pm

Our 2 WOW Church members visited St Chad's Church in Middleton to delivered a presentation, alongside our group members from St John's Thornham and Milnrow Parish Primary School, to over 40 diocese representatives.  The children explained and showed the diocese the various projects we have worked on this year, set up an environmental challenge for the parishioners to complete and then sung our song, 'Rich Diversity'.  Each child represented their school brilliantly and the Dean of Rochdale was so impressed with the way the children conducted themselves during the presentation.  The diocese is taking on board the children’s suggestions of a Plastic Policy in every church and we look forward to next year's group where we hope to again make a difference to the environment of our churches in Rochdale.

Date: 18th Apr 2024 @ 9:18am

Our two WOW (Watch Our World) church representives visited St John's Thornham Church of England Primary School this afternoon for our next WOW meeting.  This meeting focused on the local environment and we had a fantastic opportunity to have a visit from a Hedgehog Hospital.  Here, the children learnt about the impact humas are having on hedgehogs and how we can better look after our environment for our local wildlife.  The children found out a range of facts about hedgehogs and created a 'hedgehog house' (a hibernacula) to support hedgehogs in the area.

St Peter's Pebbles Playground Assembly, by Mrs Brandwood

Date: 1st Mar 2024 @ 2:56pm

St Peter's Playground Pebbles lead a fantastic whole school assembly on Tuesday.

The Pebbles explained how they could support children at playtime and lunchtime who are feeling lonely or who are finding it difficult to join in a game. They explained how they will model and use our Christian Values to help everyone have fun when playing outside on our playground. 

In front of the whole school, the Pebbles made their special promise:

A friend to all who need it - for we believe that,

"...if one falls down, his friend can help him up..." 

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10.

The group then went onto explain the exciting new games they will be leading each lunchtime and introduce some of our new playground equipment.


Well done to our Pebbles!  You showed great leadership, teamwork, bravery and friendship as you delivered your assembly.  Everyone at St Peter's is very excitied to get outside and play at break and lunchtime!

St Peter's WOW Church Welcomes 'Praise Along' to record a fantastic collective worship song!, by Mrs Brandwood

Date: 1st Mar 2024 @ 2:42pm

On Tuesday, St Peter's enjoyed hosting our Spring Term WOW Church Synod Group meeting.  This meeting was special as we were delighted to welcome Kelly and her team from ‘Praise Along’ to produce an environmentally based collective worship song.  10 children from St Peter’s were joined by children from St John’s Thornham and Milnrow Parish to sing a beautiful song called, ‘Rich Diversity’.  This was a wonderful opportunity for our children and they had a fantastic time singing, performing and recording the song.  It was amazing to hear the collective voices of our group sing out about such an important topic with great enthusiasm! 

Thanks again to Kelly and her Team from ‘Praise Along’ for this opportunity and for members of our diocese for attending and showing their support.  We are looking forward to hearing our song when it is published later this year – watch this space!  


Our WOW Church members would also like to share the prayer we said at the beginning of our meeting to show our gratitude for our wonderful world:


Dear God,

We praise you for the beauty of creation, its richness and variety.

The earth is yours, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

Grant us your grace that we may exercise wise stewardship of this Earth; tread lightly upon it and cherish its resources so that in years to come everyone may enjoy its riches.

Please be with us today as we create this song to help spread the word of how wonderful and diverse your creation is.

Help us to restore and care for this beautiful earth you blessed us with.
