Collective Worship is a time when the whole school family come together to worship and think. We learn about Christian values and think about how we can put our values into action for the benefit of all in our community. We learn about Christian values such as generosity, justice, compassion, trust, hope, peace, 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.
Usually, lots of people lead our acts of worship:
Open the Book team
Reverend David Horsfall
The Crackpot Company
...as well as the children themselves.
However, at the moment we have worship in our own classrooms, joined as a whole school remotely. This gives us a sense of being together as we worship and keeps everyone safe.
In Collective Worship we do lots of different things to help us understand and appreciate the Christian Values. Take a look below:
Hear stories stories from the Bible
Find out about inspirational people and how they put their values into action
Hear about local, national and global issues and consider our own views (Picture News)
Listen to stories of all faiths
Share our own thoughts, feelings and experiences
Each term we focus upon a particular Christian value. This year so far we have thought about the value of generosity and next term we will be learning about compassion. Last term, our ambassadors helped us to donate over 400 tins and packets to local elderly residents and Chesterfield Foodbank.
