Collective Worship

Some images of Collective Worship throughout our school.


Welcome back to our new school year 2016/2017.  Each week we will be posting photographs of our Collective Worship as we celebrate 'Learning Together with God' and living out our Christian values.

Tuesday 27th September 2016

This week our Collective Worship celebration focused on a reading from The Letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians.  In this reading we are reminded of our call to be followers of Christ and to put our hope in him. 

Tuesday 4th October 2016

This week we celebrated the feast day of St Francis of Assisi.  St Francis is the Patron Saint of our Reception Class. In our Collective Worship today, we learned about viewpoints - of seeing the glass half full, or half empty.  The message of our Collective Worship was to have hope. 

 Tuesday 11th October 2016

The message of this weeks Gospel was 'doing things in good grace'.  The message encourages our children to have good intentions and love in their hears when making a decision or doing an action.   

 Tuesday 18th October 2016

'Blessed be the Lord who is my rock'. Today's collective worship was a lovely way to end our term focus on the value of hope.  We were reminded that God is always with us, caring for us, guiding us and protecting us on our journey through life.  

 Term 2 

Tuesday 1st November 2016

On Tuesday the 1st of November, the staff and children of our school attended a whole school mass in honour of All Saints' Day. The day is dedicated to the saints of the Church.

Our children sang beautifully at the mass which was attended by many of our parents and fellow parishioners.  Our children were busy on their first day of term with hymn practice. 


Tuesday 8th November 2016

Gentleness is our focus value for Term 2. Our collective worship today reminded children of the importance of understanding in when we are trying to do something. We discussed our understanding of gentleness. We were reminded of Mary as a model of gentleness and how often if we are unsure of our understanding that we use a model. Mary reminds us of the value of gentleness in The Wedding at Cana, when she brings a problem to Jesus and patiently waits for his help.


"Even the greatest strength and power cannot overcome gentleness. Gentleness can overcome anything" - Grace Year 6.

'I will sing to the Lord my God'


I'm going to sing, sing, sing,

I'm going to dance, dance, dance,

I'm going to sing, I'm going to dance,



When the gates are open wide,

I'll be standing by your side,

When the gates are open wide,

I'll be standing by your side,

I'm going to sing, I'm going to dance,



Hymn Practice 


Tuesday 22nd November 2016

We are preparing ourselves for Advent. Advent is a special time when we get ready for the coming of Jesus. The word advent comes from the Latin word venio, which means come. It is very exciting when we know that someone is coming to visit us. We make sure that we are ready when they come. In today's collective worship,  we thought about how we get ready to welcome visitors, and how we get ready to welcome Jesus. Advent is a time of preparation. We need to prepare ourselves to celebrate this great event.


Year 3/4 celebrated their first class mass on Wednesday. They too choose the theme of preparation for their celebration. The theme of preparation and hospitality is strongly reflected in our bidding prayers:


  1. We pray for all people around the world who are alone or frightened or have had to leave their homes because of fighting: that they may be welcomed by others and may see their families again. Lord, in your mercy…


  1. We pray for people who are travelling to visit others or who have a long or difficult journey ahead: that they may arrive safely and may receive a warm welcome. Lord, in your mercy…


  1. We pray for our parish, families and friends: that we may always be welcoming to others and that we may share what we have with those who are in need. Lord, in your mercy…


  1. Generous God, we give thanks for all those people who have visited us, or whom we have visited. Help us always to welcome the people we meet in life, no matter who they are or where they come from. Lord, in your mercy...


  1. God asks us to be ready so that we can welcome Jesus when he comes. Together we ask for Mary our Mothers help. Hail Mary….

Tuesday 29th November 2016

A reading from the Prophet of Isaiah.  In this weeks collective worship, we hard how Isaiah is looking forward to a time when the peace of Jesus will influence the whole world. In our world today there are many people who do not live in peace and so today, as we began our Advent journey, we prayed for them.

Light up a Life Assembly 

'A dedication of friendship and remembrance'

Family and friends of our school and parish are invited to dedicate a Christmas bauble and place it on our Christmas tree.  At Christmas we remember family and friends who have passed away and are with Jesus in heaven. The baubles are a reminder that they still shine in our lives.

We remember our loved ones with joy.


We offer our prayers for all who are lonely or grieving at this time of Christmas. May their hearts be filled with peace and joy.

John: 33-36

In today's Gospel, Jesus says what he has to tell us is very important.  Now days, we know this is true because one of the most important things Jesus taught us was to love one another and take care of each other. We are reminded that it is up to us to keep his message alive in the world today. We can do this by living out our Christian values.

This term we are combining our music lessons, hymn practice and collective worship. Each week we will be listening to a different instrument family.  This week we heard music created by string instruments.  We are very blessed to have many talented people at St Patrick's.  Among them are one of our students Sophia and her father.  They very kindly came to play for us today.

May Procession

17th May 2017

Bring flowers of the rarest
bring blossoms the fairest,
from garden and woodland and hillside and dale;
our full hearts are swelling,
our glad voices telling
the praise of the loveliest flower of the vale!
O Mary! we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels, Queen of the May,
O Mary! we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels, Queen of the May.


Outdoor Collective Worship
