Collective Worship is a central part of every day at Oldswinford. It's a special time when we come together to listen and learn, share and reflect, give praise and thanks, pray and grow spiritually. Worship is led by either staff or children as well as the "Open The Book" team or clergy from St. Mary's Church. We base our worship on the Christian faith and the teachings of Jesus, underpinned by our values and vision. However, we also use this time to learn about and reflect on special days, celebrations, other faiths and influential people and events.
We open each act of worship, with a collective greeting which represents the Holy Trinity:
Charlotte requested to lead our whole school worship. Speaking clearly and confidently, she presented a powerpoint and video clip, inspiring us with her strong Christian beliefs and asking us to think about our own perceptions of Christianity. She left us with a challenge to notice when God speaks to us and whether we are listening or not.
Thank you Charlotte for enriching our worship with your faith and courage.
