Yesterday, a group of pupils completed their training to become members of the Worship Council. After applying by letter to Mrs Williams for the position of a Worship Councillor back in December, seven pupils were selected to represent the school.
Along with pupils from Baschurch, they all took part in a training session with Alex Wolvers (Christian Distinctiveness Advisor) and Rev. Clayton. As part of the Worship Council, pupils will both plan and deliver worship at each school. During the training, they learnt how to create practical activities by taking part in active praying. The children really enjoyed these activities and were able to think deeply about local and world issues.
The pupils also worked together to create a Federation Prayer, which now can be used by the councillors and pupils at both schools.
The day was a real success and all pupils now can’t wait to get started with the planning and preparations for their first worship in school. The day ended with the pupils receiving a certificate to commemorate their achievements of being selected and successfully completing their training as a member of the Worship Council.
Well done to Isla C, Amy C, Cassius M, Sophie C, Alex F, Charley M and Leo M.
