Worship at St Christopher's CE School is Inclusive, Inspirational and Invitational.
"Collective worship offers pupils and adults a secure space for spiritual development, where thinking and considering the important questions of life is highly valued." SIAMS 2023
"In Church of England schools, collective worship is seen as more than a daily ‘awe and wonder’ moment. It is the unique heartbeat of the school and is offered as part of a wider opportunity for pupils and adults to encounter faith by engaging in conversations about God, both as individuals and together" Collective Worship Guidance
An act of Collective Worship takes place every day and is an important part of school life, making space for pupils and staff to come together and share in worship through learning, music, reflection and prayer.
Our worship is inclusive, invitational and inspiring and gives all of the school community the chance to be part of the experience, while respecting the integrity of family and cultural backgrounds.
Worship is always linked to our school vision - The weekly pattern of collective worship looks like this:
Monday – Head Teacher’s worship, introducing the focus of the week/term. This is always linked to our school vision.
Tuesday - This worship is led by a member of the SLT and linked to celebration days or events within the calendar,
Wednesday - Whole school collective worship
Thursday - Each teacher takes a turn each term to deliver worship linked to the school vision
Friday - Celebration Assembly - SHINE at 9!
