Collective Worship

Collective worship guidelines for Church schools in the Diocese of Chelmsford.

Worship is central to the life of every Church school. The information in this section, we hope, will  give you background information, ideas and resources to create worship that is meaningful for all who participate. It is designed as a springboard to good practice and a useful tool for teachers, heads, clergy and governors.

As a web based resource, it will be added to over time so that it reflects and shares the worship that takes place in schools around the Diocese. It is an arena in which you can communicate ideas and approaches that have worked well in your school; themes that have engaged the children, a resource that you have found useful, events that have enriched the life of the school, perhaps some special Easter or Christmas worship or a school Eucharist.  Do feel free to email any resources, photos, weblinks that you think would be useful to other church schools and we will upload them to this section of our website.

If you require personalised support, contact the education team on 01245 294441 or and the relevant Schools Advisor will get back to you.

Our hope is that this resource will offer inspiration, boost confidence and remind us that worship can be the heartbeat of the school, bringing life and energy to all in the community.
