St. Wilfrid’s Church and Community News


St. Wilfrid’s Church is a beautiful church here in the village of Halton.

At school we are fortunate to benefit from the dedicated support of our vicar, Rev’d Susan Seed, and many other members of the church family.

What’s happening in the community?

At St. Wilfrid’s School, we are always looking at ways in which we can live out our Christian Vision and maintain our strong links with the local community, utilizing the skills of the staff, children and people living within Halton itself.

The school building itself is used on many occasions by outside agencies and our children often represent the St. Wilfrid’s at other locations.

Below is the latest information about St. Wilfrid’s Church and St. Wilfrid’s School in the community.

Community Tea – Each half term St Wilfrid’s welcome members of the local community to come and have afternoon tea with us. Pupils from different classes provide entertainment, giving a glimpse of their current learning in school.

Fair Trade – As part of Fair Trade week, parents and friends of the school were invited into school to see some of the children’s work. They were able to buy a cup of fair trade tea and a slice of cake, with proceeds going to charity. We were delighted with turn out for this event.

Community Open Evening – Everyone was invited to come and look around our school in order to meet staff and find out more about the children’s learning.

Messy Church – St Wilfrid’s Church holds Messy Church in school every month and warmly invites children and their carers to take part in fun activities and enjoy a meal,  being church together in the community.

Harvest Festival – There is always an impressive number of harvest donations from our school families, for which we are very thankful. After the school Harvest celebration,  gift boxes are prepared by staff, parents and carers and then delivered by the children to elderly or infirm members of the village. In addition, there are always plenty of non-perishable items left to donate to wider community causes such as The Olive Branch and Homeless Action in Lancaster.
