Our students have a weekly Collective Worship assembly with their year group, giving them the opportunity to reflect upon God and their own lives, and how they can grow in wisdom and stature, just as Jesus did.
Worship is planned and delivered by staff and students right across our school family, with most of our worship coming from our students. Form classes take it in turns to prepare worship, centring around the theme of the week. Bible readings, prayers, real-life stories, videos, quiet times of reflection, visual illustrations and interactive object lessons all inspire and challenge us to consider how we can each grow in our Christian character and grow closer to God as individuals, as well as growing together as a community.
As well as our students taking a leading role, worship is often led by our Chaplain, Josh, as well as members of our Senior Leadership Team, our Learning Mentor Team, and guest speakers.
Worship at St Michael's is not only for our students. All our staff members are invited to come along to any of our Collective Worship assemblies. One staff member commented, "Worship is my favourite time of the week. It gives me 20 minutes to sit, reflect and relax, and I always learn something."
