Collective worship is an important part of the day when we come together either as a whole school family, a key stage or a class.
There is usually a visual focus e.g. a powerpoint, flowers, a candle, an object of interest.
We sing songs of praise and have the opportunity to be still and reflect.
At Stoborough we have a Collective Worship Group run by the Deputy headteacher / RE coordinator where ‘The Lighting The Candle,’ programme is followed. We meet each week and work on drama and artwork for use in worship. We learn about Christian traditions, like The Lord’s prayer, and discuss the themes we would like to incorporate into our worship sessions.
We have recently decided to introduce a prayer box – just place your prayers inside and the worship group will read them out.
We will be helping to make the hall ‘Worship Ready,’ and want to be involved in more drama as well as assisting with the gathering and sending traditions in our whole school worship sessions.
