Deepcar St John's Church

Deepcar St john's is a proudly Christian school that has been the heart of the local community for over 50 years. The school, previously situated on Carr Road moved to its

present location in 1968. St John's school has always had very close links with Deepcar St John's Church. 

We enjoy a very strong and positive relationship with The Vicar, Hilda Issacson, who visits the school on a half termly basis to lead acts of worship.  We regularly celebrate the major events in the Christian calendar at the church. 

The vicar is an ex-officio member of the governors of St John's and several members of the churches congregation serve as school governors, all making a valuable contribution to the life of the school.

Reverend Hilda Issacson joined us this morning for another Open the Book Collective Worship.Today, they told us the about the 'Party.' This is where Jesus was invited to a party along with the hosts favourite relatives, important friends and their rich neighbours. During the party, Jesus said to them that they have invited the wrong people and next time they should ask the poor, blind, disabled and the sick to the party as they are not rich enough to throw their own. This meaningful reenactment delivered a valuable message to the children that everyone is important and should be treated equally.Thank Revendend Hilda and friends from Deepcar St John's Church.

It is always a blessing to be able to give to anyone but especially to those who are in need of help. As in previous years we have been overwhelmed by your generosity. Thank you so much. This afternoon, St John's Church was full of parents, carers, family members and friends, who all joined in with our celebrations. We hope you enjoyed the service, which involved beautiful singing, bible readings and prayers from a range of children from across the school.
