Collective worship must be according to the rites, practices and principles of the Church in England or Church in Wales. We provide guidelines to support this and support is available from our RE Adviser and School Consultants.
Worship Workshop is a project created by the National Society, The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) and the Liturgical Commission. It aims to empower and enrich the practice of worship in our schools. It will help you to create your own patterns of worship around your own themes and provides prayers, songs, Bible readings and other useful words and ideas which are taken from the liturgy of the Church of England. These can be sorted with Season and Value indexes to make patterns where you can slot stories and other things to go with your themes. Click here to go to the website.
