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.  

Springfield Park Trip - Bees, by Miss Wilkinson

Date: 6th Jun 2024 @ 4:39pm

Year 2 had a fantastic trip to Springfield Park where they learnt all about bees and nature. We began our day with an interactive plant session with the resident nature expert. We learnt about how different plants have different jobs in nature with some of our amazing flower borders created by the parks volunteers. After that, we had a short orienteering lesson to get our minds thinking about bees. In the afternoon, we explored the hedgehog houses, pond, bug hotels and even planted our own plants. To finish our day, we all became bee keepers. We were shown how to put on the bee keeping suit and how to stay safe around bees. We then had a look into their hives and found the queen bee! Can you remember what she looked like?

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.
