Collective Worship Focus 2020-21

Daily Act of Worship

At St Peter's we join together daily as a community.  This currently takes place via TEAMS but we usually meet together in the hall.

Our Collective Worship is usually split into four sections;

- Welcome

- Learning

- Reflecting

- Responding


We will prepare the alter table and light either a single candle or three candles representing the Trinity signaling the start of worship.  


We will share the bible story linked to the Christian Value either through reading from the Lion Storytellers Bible, using a playscript, modern story, poem, artwork, artifacts or video.


This is where we have the opportunity to take time to consider how what we have heard, seen or felt has made us think.  This is sometimes a quite time of stillness and meditation giving the chance to pause in a very hectic day.  Short discussions take place or games such as scratch are played to make us all think a little harder rather than accepting the first thought that pops into our head. 


Questions or scenarios are posed where we think about our own lives and the decisions that we make on a daily basis.  Do we make wise decisions? 

St. Peter's School

St. Peter's is part of The Rivers Church of England Multi Academy Trust. The Trust is made up of Church schools and Community Schools. Our Vision of Love, Learn, Live is shared by all schools, with the wording adapted to reflect the ethos and distinctiveness of the schools.


At St. Peter's we welcome children and families who hold Christian beliefs, those who follow religions other than Christianity and those who do not follow any religion. We pride ourselves on being a fully inclusive school and community. 


As a church school, our worship is based around Christianity, however our worship is always invitational, meaning that children and adults are welcome to join prayers or take time for contemplation and reflection.


When we talk about the Christian belief of being loved as God's children, we also reference being loved by our parents/carers and significant people in our lives. When we talk about learning from the teachings of Jesus, we also reference learning from each other and the important people with whom we connect and share experiences.

Harvest Week

We joined together in our year groups to celebrate the harvest.  We shared the story of the Parable of the Sower thinking about how we make decisions in our own life and who may influence us in a good way.  Our Reception children also had their scarecrow wedding as part of the festivities.

St Peter's school community collected boxes and boxes of food that were donated to Maggs Homeless Shelter and Droitwich Spa Food Bank.  The gifts were greatly received. 

The Parable of the Farmer and the Seeds (Parable of the Sower)

Based on Luke 8: 4-15, Matthew 13: 1-9, 18-23, and Mark 4: 1-20.
