Collective Worship

At St Meriadoc Junior Academy, we join together every day for collective worship as we value the importance of coming together in unison as a community. We have different Worship Leaders who take each day within the week, from Mrs Nisbet, different teachers, visitors from local churches as well as the children themselves through the Worship Committee.

During collective worship children are given many opportunities to be involved and engaged. Children take part through joining as a whole community and singing together, they are also often asked to lead prayers and times of reflection. 

Bible stories and topics covered are linked to our Christian values or topical issues and during worship children are engaged by reflecting on how these teachings can impact on their lives and the decisions they make.

Children are also invited to share any of their personal celebrations within collective worship and are involved within reviewing collective worship to keep it relevant for all of our pupils, no matter their beliefs. 

Our reflection and prayer time allows all of our pupils to think about what they have gained from our Collective Worship regardless of pupils' individual faiths, religions and beliefs. This time of our Collective Worship is used to show our mutual respect for others.
