Tuesday 16th July 2019 saw the children of Bridge & Patrixbourne School visit St Peter's Bridge for the final time this academic year. Two services were held to accomodate the entire school with a class from each year group in each service. The services were complied by Mrs Perfect but the children had picked their favourite hymns and had written prayers from each year group. The children also shared reflections from the year, sharing their happiest memory, saddest memory, greatest learning moment and funniest memories ( which raised a few chuckles from the congregation). Parents and teachers joined in with some beautifully chosen hymns, accompanied by the multi-talented Mr Luck on the organ. Estella and Margaret where there to share prayers and blessings with the children and staff and the service ended, as is tradition, with the year 6 students leaving to a round of applause as they departed their final school service after 7 years at Bridge & Patrixbourne School. It was a very moving morning for all those involved.

A record 350 pilgrims passed through St Mary’s Patrixbourne on the walk from Wye to Dover via Canterbury on Saturday 22nd June as part of the Pilgrims Way Challenge. Participants could walk 25, 35 or 55km and the walk is expected to raise over £90,000 for Pilgrims Hospices. Congratulations to all of those involved.
