Collective Worship is a time when the whole school family come together to worship and think. We learn about universal and Christian values and consider how to put them into action for the benefit of all in our community. We learn about Christian values such as trust, hope, peace, generosity, respect, hope and thankfulness. In Collective Worship, we have plenty of opportunities for spiritual development, developing a sense of awe and wonder. We can choose to worship God, think about our own beliefs and values and consider those of others.
Lots of people lead our acts of worship, like:
Open the Book team
Reverend David Horsfall
The Crackpot Company
...as well as the children themselves.
In Collective Worship we do lots of different things to help us understand and appreciate the Christian Values. Take a look below:
Watch clips about stories from the Bible
Listen to stories
Share our own thoughts, feelings and experiences
Each term we focus upon a particular Christian value. This year so far we have learnt about helpfulness and caring for each other and the environment. Our ambassadors decide how we can put our values into action. so far this year we have helped a member of our family to raise money for important medical treatment, Children in Need and we shall be making lots of Christmas shoeboxes to send to faraway friends we haven't met yet.
