Worship

Tutor Group Worship

This takes place in tutor groups led by tutors and students on a Wednesday or Thursday afternoon registration. The materials used in these times are planned by the Worship Team and seek to give students, and staff, an opportunity to stop, have a moment of silence, pray, and to worship God. These times are planned not to ram Christianity down students' throats but to give them the chance to hear about and explore the Christian faith for themselves, at their own pace.

 

Year Group Worship

These are times that traditionally we called Assemblies. They still contain notices and give the Heads of Year the opportunity to speak to year groups. But the key feature of these times is worship. They begin with a candle being lit, and then a Clergy Chaplain, a member of staff, a tutor group or a visitor delivers a time of thought, reflection, and prayer to engage students in exploring the theme for that week.

 

Worship Services

These take place several times during the year. They are times to celebrate Key School events and Christian Festivals. These are Christian in nature and content, and aim to meet each student where they are on their walk of faith. Celebrating together is a foundation feature of our school and brings us together as a community to worship God
