Every day an act of worship based on our termly Christian value is held in school. Every worship opens with us lighting three candles to represent the Holy Trinity of God and we join hands and say these words as the candles are lit:
As we join together and light the candles we think of:
God the Father creator of our world,
God the Son who was sent to save us,
And God the Holy Spirit who lives in us always.
During the worship children are encouraged to listen, think and share idea with each other, as well as being given time to reflect within themselves.
Prayers are shared, often including The Lord’s Prayer and we especially enjoying singing hymns and worship songs together.
The acts of worship are led by a range of people and include many opportunities for pupils to participate.
A typical week of worship would include:
- Class worship where we explore and reflect on our value together in a more intimate environment.
- A visit by the local Open the Book Team to explore Bible stories.
- Worship by Vicar John
- Worships led by Mr Dean or one of the teachers.
Parents and local advisors are invites to join worship and many do so at least once a week.
