Whole School Worship

Picture 1

'Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go'

Joshua 1:9

Worship at St.Paul's

This is integral to life at our school and revolves around the teachings of Jesus and our core values of Friendship, Respect, Forgiveness, Responsibility, Hope, Thankfulness and Trust. The WOW Committee have adopted five foundation values of Service, Justice, Perseverance, Generosity and Courage. 

Each half term is focused on one of these values. Each day we come together for a time of worship in which to learn, reflect and pray. Whole school worship on Monday introduces the theme for the week followed by a discussion and response in Class Worship on Tuesday. Wednesday is devoted to praising God through singing and prayer. On Thursday our Priest in charge Reverand Tim delivers God's message. Friday is our celebration assembly when we celebrate the children's success and reward the golden jumper to the child who has demonstrated our value that week.
