Collective Worship

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future".  Jeremiah 29:11

 

Collective Worship is central to the life of the school and the whole school community come together to worship every day.  Our worship reflects our Christian Values, focusing on one each term on a two year rolling program.  

2021 – 2022

Thankfulness, Truthfulness, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship, Respect

2022-2023

Generosity, Compassion, Humility, Trust, Perseverance, Responsibility  

We have a daily Collective Worship where the whole school comes together in the hall.  During worship, we read stories to help us explore a value or a moral; sing songs or hymns; reflect and participate in quiet thought and enjoy coming together as a whole school community. During worship we focus on our worship table and light three candles during the liturgy.  This provides a focal point as we gather as a whole community for collective worship and reflection. Collective worship is planned to include biblical material and Christian teaching, focusing on Jesus Christ and on God as Father and Holy Spirit.  Worship is led led by school staff, pupils, local Ministers and Clergy members and the local 'Open the book' team.  Pupils take an active part in worship and we welcome a range of guest speakers to help us explore the locality and world around us.  

We have a school prayer that we say or sing to music.  The prayer is based on the inspirational words of John Wesley.

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can

We celebrate our children's achievements through our weekly celebration worship. We recognise children who have embodied our values as well as excelled in their learning throughout the week.  

Prayer Spaces 

At Primrose Hill C of E we aim to create an environment where children are given space and time to reflect and pray in their own personal way.  The school encourages children and adults to offer their thoughts, reflections and prayers in the many prayer spaces we have around the school.  These are designed by the children in the Kaleidoscope crew and reflect either our termly value, time in the church calendar or the Lords Prayer.
