Collective Worship

Collective Worship
 

From small beginnings come great things’ The Parable of the Mustard Seed  

Matthew 13: 31-32 

 
Collective worship is central to the life of our school and offers the pupils and others in our school an opportunity to reflect on values and issues in the context of our Christian vision and ethos. It is an expression of our vision and shapes our approach to others and to what we do in school. We warmly invite all members of our school community to join our worship.  
Collective worship is an integral part of church school life. It is the 'heartbeat' of a church school community, providing a space where pupils and staff can come together to worship God, to reflect on 'life in all its fullness' and allowing opportunities for all to grow spiritually.
Pre COVID, pupils had the chance to lead collective worship and special assemblies such as Harvest, Easter and Christmas.
 
Now that life seems to be returning back to normal, we are slowely starting to re-introduce pupil led worship starting with our fortnightly celebration assembly.
