St Matthew’s Primary children create a warm atmosphere at ‘Warm Spaces’ at St Matthew’s Church ‘Warm Spaces’ is part of a nation-wide initiative to open up Church spaces as warm, safe places for anyone to come along and meet a friendly face, have some refreshments and be somewhere warm. As part of this new initiative at St Matthew’s Church, children from St Matthew’s Primary School were delighted to help out on Saturday 26th November, making teas and coffees and play with any younger children who turned up. Six children, accompanied by two members of staff, welcomed families into the Church with a cup of tea and free heat, games to play and other families to chat with. Mr Lucas, the St Matthew’s Primary School Headteacher, said “This is a wonderful initiative to help our local families and community and we were delighted to be involved. Our children were ambassadors for our school and were so polite, well-mannered and generous with their time: we are very proud of them all.” St Matthew’s School will be present once per term to help with this initiative, however, members of the Church community will be at ‘Warm Spaces’ every Saturday from 12noon – 5pm at St Matthew’s Church, in the St Matthew’s Playgroup building. All are welcome and it is an opportunity to get out of the cold and be in a safe environment, where there is free heating, and most importantly a nice hot cup of tea. See you there!
