Christ Church New Malden

Christ Church New Malden Primary School is a Voluntary Aided School with a strong Christian ethos. We are closely linked to Christ Church and its sister church St John’s. Every Wednesday, the vicar, Rev. Stephen Kuhrt, or youth worker, Nathan Larkin, leads collective worship at school. 

Four times a year the whole school comes together for a service at church. Each service is led by a year group:

  • Harvest: Years 3 and 4

  • Christmas: Years 1 and 2

  • Easter: Year 5

  • End of Year: Year 6

The services, which also welcome parents and other members of the school and local community, are a wonderful way to join with the church to celebrate God’s goodness to us.


Once a term, Christ Church host a prayer meeting for people who want to pray for the school. Led by Rev. Stephen Kuhrt, these meetings bring together parents, staff, governors, church members and former pupils.

Governors from Christ Church and St John’s form the majority of our Governing body.

We are part of the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education, which has schools across South London and East Surrey.

Open the Book

One of the highlights of each week's collective worship is when Open the Book come to share that week's Bible story. Open the Book are a group of Christians from local churches who bring to life a Bible story, with the children taking on different roles every week.
