Collective Worship is an important time during which we can share in celebrating God's love and learning more about our Christian faith.
Here at Richard Wakefield we have whole school worship on four days each week. On a Monday the Key Stages have a Key stage specific assembly. On a Friday we hold a whole school celebration assembly, to share the successes of our children both in and out of school.
A daily, shared act of worship, in the Christian tradition, is led by children, teachers, Reverend Pip, Reverend Ian or guest speakers. All acts of worship have an underlying Christian theme although their focus may be about world events or social dilemmas. Each month we explore a different value such as respect, compassion and determination, alongside our Christian values.
Our Value for February is Positivity.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Our Value for January is Determination.
1 Corinthians 9 24-27
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
Our Value for December is Hope.
1 John 3: 1-3
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 2 Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears,[a] we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. 3 All who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.
Our Value for November is Empathy.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
Our Value for October is Tolerance.
2 Timothy 4:1-2
In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.
Our Value for September is Confidence.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
