“Stand firm in the faith, be courageous, be strong, do everything in love”
(1 Corinthians 16:13-14)
At Trinity & St Michael’s Church of England and Methodist Primary School we strive to follow Jesus’ example and do everything in love.
Through living out our Christian Values we seek to equip our pupils with the skills to be able to learn to love and love to learn so that they are able to become the very best they can for themselves, for others and for our wonderful world. We want children to be able to enact positive change across all spheres of society.
‘God’s Kingdom is one of peace, love, joy, unity, equality, respect, forgiveness and compassion. It is a Kingdom where all can flourish, finding belonging, purpose and fulfilment. It is a Kingdom where we receive God’s love and the promise of ‘life in all its fullness’ through Jesus’ (John 10:10).
Our vision thread – do everything in love (1 Corinthians 16:14) – is at the heart of what it means to be Christian. The call to live marked by love is a consistent message found throughout Scriptures. When the apostle Paul wrote to the church of Corinth, he instructed them to do everything in love. At Trinity & St Michael’s, we aim to apply this instruction to our lives as we pursue our vision and strive to be more like Jesus. We actively seek to let love guide our thoughts, actions and words when we embrace a culture of togetherness.
Likewise, following the words of John Wesley, “I look upon all the world as my parish; thus far I mean, that in whatever part of it I am, I judge it meet, right, and my bounden duty to declare unto all that are willing to hear, the glad tidings of salvation.” – Journal, June 11, 1739, we aim to ensure that all members of Trinity and St Michael’s Church of England and Methodist Primary School have a clear understanding of Christian faith and are able to develop the skills required to reach out and engage with the world, to minister to the world and to be in mission to the world.
