Collective Worship

Collective worship is an important part of the day where we come together as a school to think about our Christian values and how God would want us to live. We follow the structure of 'Gathering' 'Engaging' 'Responding' and 'Sending' 
 
Gathering - A special atmosphere is created to show the children that this is a distinctive part of our school day. We light a candle and say "We light this candle in the name of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit."
 
Engaging - We engage (‘get to grips with’) the big things and the little things in life. We encounter Jesus and the stories of the Bible. We listen for God’s message to us.
 
Responding - We respond to what we have heard and seen. We respond together and as individuals. We are given the opportunity to worship God.
 
Sending - We are sent out to love and serve one another and to make a difference in the world. We are all dismissed with God’s blessing.
