Whittlesford is blessed in having two churches, St Mary and St Andrew Parish Church and the United Reformed Church, who work together for the good of the village. The school has very strong links with both churches.
The parish church service of St. Mary's & St. Andrew's is held at William Westley across the year.
A team from the churches comes into school every Wednesday morning to take collective worship where our school vision of "Let your Light shine" [Matthew 5:16] and our school values are augmented, through learning about stories from the bible and Christian teaching.
The whole school come to each of the churches in turn for special acts of worship including our Easter, Harvest and Christmas service. Our Harvest service is a special time of living out our school vision, as each child is encouraged to bring a homegrown or homemade item as a harvest offering, which is then sold at the end of the school day and goes to support the school in Tlkokweng, Botswana. We also come to the Parish Church of each July to celebrate the founder of our school William Westley, which is followed by a school community picnic and school fete at the end of the day. This year we had a very special celebration at the Parish Church for the 300th anniversary of William Westley, with the visit of Bishop Stephen who shared how we can each . A mug with our school vision was donated by the William Westley charity to each member of the school community.
For Remembrance Sunday and the Parish Church Christmas Carol service, members of the school take part in the service through readings and singing with the school choir.
At least twice a year the school hosts the churches together for an All Age Informal service and takes part in the service with the school orchestra, choir or with readings. These services bring in lots of the school families and is a great interactive intergenerational service.
