Together We Grow

Our School Community

St John the Evangelist, Merrow

Merrow C of E Infant School has close links with our local parish church, St John the Evangelist Merrow. During the school year we hold some of services at the Church, e.g. Harvest, Christingle, Christmas and Easter services and at the end of the school year the Leavers service. All parents are welcome to join us. 


The Rev. Tim Clifford Hill became the Rector ot St. John the Evangelist Church, Merrow in October 2023. Each week he will lead collective worship within school.

He can be contacted at

If you are interested in their weekly services or groups that are held at the church please visit their website


Parents Prayer Group

A parents' prayer group is held on a regular basis and parents and carers from both schools are welcome. This is a Christian parents prayer group who pray for the school community at both the Infants and Junior schools and the local and wider community. If you would like any more information please contact, likewise if you know of anyone who you would like them to pray for, please contact them on their email.


Open the Book

The Open the Book Team from St John the Evangelist, Merrow come to school once each half term to retell a bible story for the children in Collective Worship.

Each story is carefully scripted into a 10-15 minute presentation which often involves the children in acting parts of the story; the stories are enacted in a fun way and are memorable for all of our children. We also enjoy singing the Open the Book song together.

Open the Book is an opportunity for our children to have a deeper understanding of key Bible stories. This special time with the Open the Book Team helps to develop our children’s spirituality and morality as part of our SMSC curriculum.
