Worship Council

Worship Council

Our Worship Council was set up in October 2016. Currently the members are Toby, Maddy, Kieran, Joseph, Annabel, Lacey, Lewis and Freddie. We meet on a Wednesday every term (six times a year) with Mrs Bloomer, who is a Licensed Lay Minister from Draycot Benefice.

Our role is to help our school evaluate collective worship and find ways to develop its Christian character. We want to support our school as we develop our values of diligence, respect, kindness, tolerance and honesty.

Our priorities for 2017/18

  • To help lead our Christingle service in Christian Malford Church
  • To help develop the reflection corners in our classrooms
  • To create reflective outdoor spaces in the school grounds
  • To create a special altar cloth for our worship table in the hall
  • To plan and lead at least one collective worship
  • To help in leading the Easter Experience in 2018
  • To meet with other Worship Councils to share ideas
