Rev Simon Skidmore from St Chad’s Church works with many of our children on a weekly basis. The worship group contribute to an inspiring education based on Christian beliefs, through fun activities and assemblies.

Personal Introduction

I am Rev Simon Skidmore (known as Simon) and I’m the Parish Mission Priest of Bilston based at St Chad’s Church in the Parish of Bilston. I come into school on Wednesday afternoons and spend half my time with classes; looking at stories in the Bible and other Christian-related themes. The other half of my time is co-ordinating and working with the schools ‘Worship Group’.

I’ve been in Bilston for just over 2 years even though I was born and raised in Wolverhampton. I love playing and watching cricket, football and field Hockey. I play both guitar and piano and love reading books on theology. I’ve been married to my wife for 7 years and we have 2 children. The school has a consistent and friendly worshipping ethos which integrates with its core values. It encourages pupils to participate in and initiate a variety of Acts of worship both in school and in St Leonards Church and I thoroughly enjoy working with the school and its pupils.

Harvest Assembly 2019 - The Well
Activity Report

On the 2nd October the worship group performed an assembly about Operation Christmas Child. Everyone has learnt all the rules of the shoebox appeal and what happens when a shoebox gets delivered a smile comes on a child’s face. We did a quiz, prayers, bible reading, singing and more. We sang “When I needed a Neighbour”. We covered the values of generosity, compassion. Etc.
