School Worship

 

A daily 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:

Lighting the worship candle.

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.

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 Larner or one of the teachers.

Parents and governors are invites to join worship and many do so at least once a week.
