Dean Close Parents Prayer Fellowship

Parents who have children at any of our schools across the foundation meet roughly fortnightly to catch up, support one another and to pray for the needs of Dean Close and our children. Aware that as a parent body we are very much an international bunch, we are pursuing a blended approach with local parents coming to Dean Close House for a cup of tea or coffee in person, and those who are farther flung logging on through Zoom. Any and all Dean Close parents are invited – there is no pass mark or test to join! Please do contact deancloseppf@tentastic.com for more information.
