Pilsley C of E School

Collective Worship

The children at Pilsley C of E Primary School take part in a daily act of worship which reflects the traditions of the Church of England. Each half term we focus on a different theological theme to enable the children to develop deep understanding and to have time to reflect on each concept. We use the Roots and Fruits assembly resource alongside Cornerstones Assemblies to plan the majority of our worship activities. In addition, the children reflect on bible stories which illustrate the theme. We follow the Church of England calendar and celebrate special times in the Christian calendar as well as deepening our understanding of the celebrations held by other faith groups. 

Worship sessions also highlight current affairs, develop awareness of the challenges we face today, respond to national events and celebrate inspirational people. 

Each session offers opportunity to engage in an act of community, express praise and thanksgiving to God and time for reflection and response. 

The children are encouraged to take turns to lead the collective worship sessions by doing readings, prayers and by dramatising stories.
