Spring term 2018

Themes for collective worship:


Spring 2  – COURAGE

As well as these two themes we will look at Epiphany, Candlemas, lent, mother’s Day and the Bishop’s Lent Challenge.

Collective Worship takes place everyday at school. On a Monday and Friday by the head teacher. On a Tuesday by our Church School group in the form of an ‘Open the Book’ worship. Children stay as a class for their Worship on Wednesdays and get together as a Key Stage for Worship on Thursdays.

Each Collective Worship starts with a gathering and lighting of the alter candle as well as class candles. During Worship we might look at a specific Bible reference linked to the theme of the week/term. Children have the opportunity to listen to Bible stories and reflect on how the theme  affects them and what they can do in their lives to make a positive impact. Children are invited to pray and take part in collective worship as much as possible. At the end of collective worship, the whole school take part in a sending when the candles are extinguished.
