Our Worship Leaders

Our Worship Leaders are central to the life of Christian Worship in our school.

Each class has worship leaders who help their teacher lead and prepare for our weekly class worship assemblies. In addition, we have a large team of enthusiastic Year 6 worship leaders who regularly lead our whole school worship in a variety of roles:

  • Leading and planning our after-school ‘Songs of Praise’ Services at St. Mary’s Church, Candlemas and Saints Days Services
  • Having key roles in our whole-school Communion service
  • Leading the liturgy and prayers in our whole-school worship assemblies
  • Writing prayers for our governors’ meetings
  • Caring for and developing our prayer area
  • Championing our relationship with our sponsored child, Lakono
  • Sharing feedback between staff, governors and other students

The Worship Leader Team are very committed, regularly giving up their own time to support and grow the worship and spiritual life of our school and community.

To develop their personal spirituality and leadership skills, our worship leaders are all encouraged to work towards achieving our valued ‘Worship Leader Award’ at the end of Year 6.

Our range of  Worships are invitational and inclusive and we enjoy: teacher led worships, Open the Book, worshiping inside and outside, services in St Mary's Church, singing worship, class worship and celebration worships.

Song: Hey, Hey, Hey



Our School Prayer

Father, We have come together,
To sing to you
To pray to you
And to hear you speaking to us
Help us to remember your presence with us
For Jesus Christ’s sake

The Lords Prayer

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.
