Whole School Worship

'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.

Advent Spirituality Day 22.11.18

Thursday 22nd November was Advent Spirituality Day at St Paul's, where we spent the day with Sue and the volunteers from St Paul's Church. Throughout the day, we thought about the Christmas story and we did advent-related crafts, wrote prayers and had a lot of fun! It was a fantastic opportunity for School and Church to work together and we are already looking forward to the next one!

Angry Christ! Jesus and the Holy Temple

Today children were shown the picture of 'The Angry Christ'. The title of this picture was kept a secret and children were asked who this could be or represent. The vast amount of pupils stated that this wasn't Jesus, as he is never angry. 

Trinity Sunday Worship

Today in our worship we learnt about the Trinity Sunday and how it fits in the liturgical year. Children gave their thoughts on the question, 'What is God?'
We started worship with a traditional hymn, Shine Jesus Shine.

Pentecost Worship - 21/5/18

During worship children were reminded about our Christian Value, Friendship. Mr Dugdale spoke about celebrating a friendship (wedding) of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and then a birthday celebration of the church and how Pentecost is the celebration of the Trinity, in particular the receiving of the Holy Spirit. The children spoke how it is hard to see the Holy Spirit, but easy to feel it. We created a Spirit stick, with 'flame' colours that can be waved around to represent the Holy Spirit. This was taken back to each class and supported their class worship on Tuesday.

Putting The Past Behind Us

The Prodigal Son

We looked at Rembrandt's painting about the son who returned after wasting all his father's money. Jesus told this parable to teach us to remember that Our Father God will forgive anything that we have done and are ashamed about. Thank you to Keira, Lillie, Jenson, Lucy and Evie from the Worship Committee who did a dramatic reading based on this story from Luke 15 11-32.
