Worship is a fundamental part of every day life at Trinity, and all staff and children are encouraged to worship in a variety of ways whether that's through words, prayer, dance, signing, or just their everyday actions. During COVID worship was carried out online, through a variety of video's from our local ministers and church staff to using resources provided by the Diocese. During the time when we couldn't sing we learnt how to worship in different ways such as signing and through dance and the children still love this now.
Collective worship happens once a day at both sites and then individual opportunity to worship is encouraged throughout the day. At set times of the year the whole school get together to worship as a whole community. They are led by either members of staff or the local ministers (Ian Sarginson, Rachel Harris, Ellen Monk Winstanley and Helen Millward)
The worship lead, alongside the worship group work together using the children's views and opinions and the themes from the 4-year plan to provide an interesting and diverse worship plan. It offers a wide range of topics, covering important themes in the bible, Christian values, important religious times of year, current events and celebrating how the Jesus came so that we could have life in all its fullness, looking about what this means for us in every day life both in school and at home.
Monday and Tuesday’s worship are at 10.00am at Unity Place and 10.15am Brookwood Way.
Wednesday is worship praise based around worshipping God through music, song, movement and prayer.
Thursday is a class worship where children reflect on “Big Questions” about faith, learn about different Christian people, values and British values and have an opportunity to celebrate the children’s achievements outside of school.
Friday's worship is Celebration Assembly, where children are rewarded with either Star or the week, or Head teacher’s Award, which is led by the Head, Deputy or a member of the SLT. It is also an opportunity to celebrate other academic achievements within school alongside their parents.
At key points in the year, Christmas, Easter and end of the year the whole school enjoy collective worship at Brookwood way. Throughout the summer term each class has a celebration assembly that they plan, write and deliver to their parents to celebrate how they have lived life in all its fullness this year.
