Collective Worship

At Christ Church we believe that Collective Worship is an integral part of our daily routine and affords us the opportunity to unite as a school family in worship and praise of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We gather as a whole school for Worship at 9:10 on Mondays and Fridays in the school hall. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we hold Worship in our Key Stage groups. On Tuesdays, our Worship is held in church, and Father Stephen regularly leads school Worship, and also a monthly Mass for Key Stage Two. Wednesdays are kept for Class Worship.

Monday and Friday Worships are open to all members of our school family; so if you would like to join us, please feel free to stay once dropping your children off in the morning.

Each week we have a Worship Theme where the children will learn about values and morals linked to Bible stories or stories from other cultures.

This year we will build on our ‘Year of the Bible’ from last year, and look at Old and New Testament themes through story. The Summer Term stories we will be looking at are: The Amazing Flower Pot (linked to Ascension and Pentecost) and The Vital Race (linked to the journey of St Paul).

In addition to this, we will continue to learn about the ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ values and how these shape us as human beings. The Fruit of the Spirit are:

Love  Joy  Peace  Patience  Kindness
Goodness  Faithfulness  Gentleness  Self-Control

Our Worship Themes for this term are:

Monday 25th April The Sense of Smell
Monday 2nd May The Sense of Taste
