Worship at St Andrew's

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."  -  Proverbs, Chapter 22, verse 6

Reverend Chris Thorpe  from St. Andrew's Church, Shifnal comes into school regularly to lead acts of collective worship.

In addition a team from the church also come into school to lead 'Open the Book.'  Open the Book (OtB) is an exciting storytelling project where Bible stories are shared with children in a way that is fun, interactive and memorable. As invited guests in school, storytelling teams use the Open the Book programme to prepare and present a 10–15-minute scripted Bible story to a school assembly, involving the children as much as possible.

Our whole school approach to collective worship is based upon Values for Life :

Each term we focus on one of our values.

Summer Term 2024 our Value is: Respect

The daily acts of collective worship are planned to give everyone a variety of experiences to develop spirituality through reflection, as well as an understanding of Christianity and aspects of other faiths and cultures. The experiences include involving children in sharing relevant stories from the Bible, Images, Drama, Poetry, Prayers, Music, Audio Visual and Singing. They enable us to reflect on and respond to things which we, as a school community, believe are important in preparing children to be responsible citizens now and in the future. 

At important times in the church calendar parents and friends are invited to join us for services in
