COLLECTIVE WORSHIP AT WARDLEY

Collective worship is an important part of our daily life in school. Each half-term we look at one of our core Christian values and explore what this means with the children and how they can reflect upon it through their own lives, their actions and their choices.

During this time of school closure we will try and give you the opportunity to continue to reflect upon this by setting out a theme linked to our half-termly value to explore each week. The idea is that you do this together as a family unit – share the stories and reflect on the messages, prayer and activities within them together. 

The Christian value that we will be looking at over this half-term is service. Each week there will be a collective worship blog posted with ideas about how to explore this value.

There are many words that spring to mind that are linked to this value: unselfishness, devotion, support, caring, giving, helping, altruism and diligence. Indeed, these are the values and qualities that we see demonstrated in the daily actions of our frontline workers and NHS staff.

From a Christian point of view Jesus exemplified in his person, ministry and relationship with God, what it was to be called the ‘servant king’. Christians believe that their calling is to follow Jesus according to their gifts or abilities. They believe that through serving God in others, ‘perfect freedom’ will ultimately be found.

We hope that you find the ideas within the weekly blogs useful and a helpful starting point to engage the children in discussion around the themes that they set out.
