Collective Worship


At Southborough Church of England Primary School our vision and values weave through our

Collective Worship provision throughout the year. 

Each term we will explore one of our six values and how they connect with our collective worship themes. 

We will also reflect on what we can do to act as beacons of light at school, as part of our community and in response to what is happening in the world.

Term 5

This term we will be focusing on our value of



Our Linked Bible text is 

Luke 8: 22-25

Collective Worship Themes for Each Week in Term 5

We always start our collective worship by lighting a candle

and saying these words:

Jesus the Light of the World is here.

Lord Jesus shine upon us.


This term our value is 'Peace' and we begin our term by exploring this value and what it means to us, our school community and the world around us.  

In Collective Worship, we will begin by looking at some of the Resurrection appearances, before focusing on the 'rules' laid down by The Order of the Mustard Seed and how we can apply them to our own lives today.  We also celebrate the festival of Pentecost and look at the importance of prayer.  We complete the term by exploring how Christians use creativity and art as their worship to God.

Collective Worship in Reception


We will be continuing to share stories with the children in collective worship from the New Testament using our Big Bible and keep some quiet reflective time to help us pause and reflect every day on each weekly theme.  We will also continue to sing our favourite songs and learn new ones with the rest of the school.



Music we will be using this term in Collective Worship

During our Singing worship sessions this term, and then throughout the week, we will be singing


We’re Better Together

Make me a channel of your peace

You are my strength when I am weak

As for me and my house

Faith as small as a mustard seed

My Jesus my Saviour
