St John's and St Peter's Church

As a church of England school, our relationship with our local church, St John's and St Peter's, is vitally important.

We have enjoyed many years of solid church / school partnership, visiting the church for important festivals such as Harvest and Easter, and working in partnership with the previous curate to deliver lessons and booster groups in school.  

In September 2023, St John's and St Peter's Church recently appointed Tracy Browne as their new Vicar after 18 months of the interregnum period. As well as sitting on our Local Academy Board, Tracy now leads Tuesday's Collective Worship across the different phases in the school. She also helps us celebrate big Christian celebrations such as Easter and Christmas.

 

Meet Tracy!

Hello Tracy! Now, you're new to Birmingham... Where did you move from?

I moved from a place in London called the Isle of Dogs!

Do you have any pets?

  • Yes, I have 2! I love my cats Dusty and Lulu!

What's your favourite story in the Bible?

  • My favourite part of the Bible is the nativity story, because it shows the whole world where it all began.

What else do you like?

I love carnivals! The colours, the dancing...

Random one to finish... If you had to be a biscuit, which one would you be and why?

I would be a flapjack, because they're sticky and squidgy!

 

Ladywood Interfaith Education Project

The Ladywood Interfaith Education Project (LIEP) is based in inner-city Birmingham. Initiated by St John & St Peter’s Parish Church, it is a partnership between four local places of faith since 1999, involving creative educational encounters for classes of school children.

Their aims are to:

  • Nurture understanding and celebration of different faiths and beliefs among school children.
  • Building on the partnerships of the communities of the four sacred spaces.
  • Create opportunities for children to explore something of their personal spirituality.
  • Enhance Religious Education syllabus of the schools involved.

Each faith is explored in its own sacred building by volunteer professional teachers and volunteer professional artists of that faith. Teaching and workshops include story, drama, art, music and appreciation of sacred space.

Our Classes visit one or two of the sacred places on a visit, exploring themes in accordance with our RE Syllabus.
