Service of Welcome 2019

20th September 2019

Today we held our annual Service of Welcome in the church.  Our Year 6 pupils led the service for the first time and were amazing. The whole school sang beautifully, even when there were technical difficulties and they had to sing unaccompanied! All our new pupils were presented with a gift on behalf of the school by Rev Christopher Bull, who we were also delighted to welcome to Frieth today.

We are so proud of the way our new pupils, especially our new Owls Reception pupils, have settled into school life. They are delightful young learners, and we feel privileged to be starting their journey through primary school learning.

 

 

All are welcome, all are welcome,

All are welcome to this place.

1

Let us build a school where love can dwell

And all can safely live

A place where saints and sinners tell

How hearts learn to forgive

Built on hopes and dreams and visions

Rock of faith and vault of grace

Here the love of Christ shall end divisions

All are welcome, all are welcome,

All are welcome to this place.

 

2

Let us build a school where prophets speak

And words are strong and true

Where all God’s children dare to seek

To dream God’s reign anew

Here the cross shall stand as witness

And as a symbol of God’s Grace

Here as one we claim the faith of Jesus

All are welcome, all are welcome,

All are welcome to this place.

 

3

Let us build a school where hands will reach

Beyond the wood and stone

To heal and strengthen, serve and teach

And live the Word they’ve known

Here the outcast and the stranger

Bear the image of God’s face

Let us bring an end to fear and danger

All are welcome, all are welcome,

All are welcome to this place.

 

4

Let us build a school where all are named

Their songs and visions heard

And loved and treasured, taught and claimed

As words within the Word

Built of tears and cries and laughter

Prayers of faith and songs of grace

Let this school proclaim from floor to rafter

All are welcome, all are welcome,

All are welcome to this place.
