As a Church of England school we are truly fortunate to have our own church of St.Mary the Virgin, Stowting, next door to the school premises.
Every Tuesday we have a Family Prayer Service before school from 8.30-8.50am. (currently postponed due to the interregnum.)
School church services are held during the year to celebrate Harvest, Christmas and Easter.
Stowting school also maintains close links with Canterbury Cathedral. We are Friends of the Cathedral ; we help to raise money for the Restoration fund through concerts performed by the school choir with invited choirs from other schools. The latest concert was in January 2014. The successful event took place in the 'Quire' section of the Cathedral. It was a wonderful experience for our pupils, for whom performing in the 'Quire' was a great achievement. We have received visits from both the Bishop of Dover and the previous Archbishop of Canterbury.

First Sunday of Lent
“One does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.” (Mt 4:4b)
As the first week of Lent begins, ask God to renew and increase your faith because: “It’s a pity to see how frequently many Christians have it on their lips and yet how sparingly they put it into their actions. You would think it a virtue to be preached only, and not one to be practiced” (The Way, no. 579).
