St James CE Primary School

Collective Worship

We are grateful for our connections with the Church of England and particularly the close relationship we have with St. James' Church, Emsworth.

As a Church School we celebrate a collective act of worship every day. When worship takes place in the hall, we have a small altar, light candles, say a prayer, and sing a hymn or song together. We always end with a prayer. The clergy from  St. James' Church takes collective worship  weekly, with other local clergy also contributing. Each class also has a worship hamper to use for class worship. 

We have an active Collective Worship team of children who choose hymns for us to sing.  Children take an active role in worship by writing and leading the prayers, reading from the Bible, being altar monitors and giving their contributions on the content of the worship.

 

We run a three year cycle for our collective worship programme, enabling us to cover key content throughout the Bible. We are currently on Year 2 of the programme.
