Collective Worship


 In Jesus, we learn, grow and pray together. 


“Keep the Joy of loving God in your heart and share this joy with all you meet especially your family. Be Holy – let us pray.” 

 Mother Theresa of Calcutta 


The Nature of Collective Worship

We believe that Christian worship in a Catholic school is concerned with giving glory, honour, praise and thanks to God. It is our loving response, in word and action, to God’s invitation to enter into relationship, made possible through the work of Jesus Christ and the witness of the Holy Spirit.


The Place of Collective Worship in the Life of Christ the King Catholic Primary School

Collective Worship at Christ the King Primary School provides opportunities for pupils and staff to come together to worship God. It will have Christ at its heart and, while respecting diversity of belief and commitment, will be Catholic in character, reflecting the liturgical tradition of the Church. We endorse the belief that Collective Worship takes into account the religious and educational needs of all who share in it.


 Worship in this school is more than just a legal requirement. It is an integral part of school life and central to the Catholic tradition. It will be related to the ‘day to day life, aspirations, and concerns of the school.’ (Education Reform Act 1988.)
