“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
1 Peter 4:10
At Bishop Wilson C of E School, we strongly believe that we all have a gift from God. We encourage everyone, students and adults alike, to live a life of service, using their gifts to help others. We motivate our children to think, ‘what can I do for others’.
Worship in schools should be “inclusive, invitational and inspiring” according to the Church of England’s guidance. Collective worship gives pupils and school staff the opportunity to
- Engage in an act of community.
- Express praise and thanksgiving to God.
- Be still and reflect.
Our Collective Worship varies each day. Every week, there is a Collective Worship led by Andi, our Vicar from St. Andrews Church. We also have weekly Celebration assemblies and teacher led worship. We welcome speakers in on a regular basis. We have visitors from Birmingham City Mission, Dean from the Christian Renewal Centre and various inspirational speakers, who help widen our horizons.
