Collective Worship Leaders

Our Collective Worship leaders are chosen each year and support the school in leading our whole school gatherings.

There are members from across the school.


 What do Worship Leaders do?

  • The children lead a Collective Worship each term, on a theme that they are passionate about
  • They contribute to the hymns and prayers we enjoy
  • They contribute to the visitors we invite into our Collective Worships
  • They wear a special badge on their uniform to let other children know they are Worship Leaders and they can speak to them about Collective Worship.
  • They may help to tell stories and act during worship (but all children have an opportunity to do this if they wish to).
  • Worship Leaders help select a child from the school for demonstrating the school’s core Christian values each half term.
  • They help the Collective Worship Leader to plan worship themes. 
  • They share their news with the school on their own Collective Worship board

This year, our Collective Worship Leaders wanted us to say the Lord’s Prayer more often:


Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,

your kingdom come,

your will be done,

on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

Forgive us our sins

as we forgive those who sin against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

and the glory are yours

now and for ever.
