The Church school community gathers daily for an act of Christian Collective Worship.
Collective Worship is an extremely important part of the school day at St Martin as we use this time to reflect, be still and to worship God. The Worship Group is a group of pupils who take a leading role in Collective Worship. We remember how Jesus welcomed children and used them as models of faith when speaking to his followers. (Luke chp 18 vss 15-17)
What does the Worship Group do?
The Worship Group have many roles each day to ensure the smooth running of Collective Worship:
preparing the room for worship and clearing up afterwards
operating the laptop, projector and the CD player
holding open doors, lighting candles, setting up the worship table
being called up by adults to take part in a drama, lead actions to songs etc
As well as this, the Worship Group also support in the planning, delivering and evaluating of Collective Worship. They write prayers linked to the current Christian value and use the resource 'Flippin Praise' to support with their planning. At St Martin, we love the resource so much, we even added a quote for the cover of the book!
Our Worship Group also support the monitoring of Reflection Areas in school and are brilliant role-models as they promote our school values.
