Welcome to Rockbeare, Reverend Lane.
On Monday 21st March 2016 the licensing of our new incumbent, Reverend Bernard Lane took place at St Mary with St Andrew church in Rockbeare.
It was a very special ceremony officiated by the Bishop of Exeter, the Right Reverend Robert Atwell. Bernard was presented to and welcomed by members of our community.
Year 5/6 took the lead during our Easter service, reading from the Bible the last days of Jesus' life. They sang 'Shalom' without music with Theo and Adam as soloists and recited the poem 'Easter joy'.
Year 3/4 recited a poem 'Look and touch', Year R/1/2 sang 'I'm a spring chicken' and Pre-School sang 'Ten little chicks' and 'Five daffodils'.
Miss Pilkingtons choir gave a beautiful rendition of 'Lean on me'.
Kayla, Ava, Alice and Jemima from the bronze award 'Lighting the Candle' group read out a prayer they had written especially for the occasion.
It was a lovely service that everyone enjoyed, as you can see from the photos below.
Many thanks to Mr Collins who took the photographs for us.
