Journeying in the Faith – EasterApril 23rd 2019
Easter is the most important time in the church’s year. The resurrection is the central belief of Christians. This is where Jesus rose from the dead, three days after being crucified on Good Friday.
The Resurrection is important for many reasons:
• God will give believers life again after they die. Like Jesus, we will have a life with Him in Heaven. We will have eternal life.

Lent is really about denying yourself of something that you enjoy in order to be reminded that it's God that you depend on in life, that it's your heavenly Father that you most need in life - not social media or computer games or a favourite food. This is the real meaning of Lent. In this way, Lent mirrors the 40 days Jesus spent fasting
in the wilderness. He voluntarily removed himself from the pleasures of life and company of people so that he could draw close to God, hear from Him, and prepare Himself for what was to come - an intense period of public ...

PTA Christmas FayreDecember 3rd 2018
Thank you to everyone who came along to support our PTA Christmas Fayre - it was a great success!

We had a great selection of gift and craft stalls including Tropic Skincare, The Book People, Flamingo Paperie cards, designer perfume with Sorelle, hand knitted items from Crafty Wools, handmade bows with Emily Lockyer and locally made honey from beekeeper Johanna Mills. We had tombolas, homemade cakes, biscuit decorating, glitter tattoos with Sparkle Art Face Painting ...

PTA Summer Fayre 2018June 14th 2018
The PTA's Summer Fayre was once again a great success - even with it being held on an evening and was technically remaining a downscaled affair. As always there was a lovely feeling of community - with the St Joseph’s family and local community enjoying the super weather. Thank you to everyone who organised the fayre, helped on the day, performed in the “arena” and came to enjoy the event.
We are pleased to say that £2,945 was raised! Well done everyone! If you enjoyed the event please do consider joining our PTA as we do need more volunteers and helping hands to be able to put on events such as this, raising money for our school and enriching ...
