Worship Council

Our worship council meet weekly and are working towards our REaction award. For part of the award we have to learn about people from other faiths and during lockdown we arranged talks by a Jewish lady and a Muslim teenager. We were able to send them lots of questions that we had about their faith and find how faith effects their daily life. 

In addition to this we entered the Reflections art competition and the whole school produced a piece of art with the title reflections on faith. This was not only a chance for each child to think about how they reflect on their own faith but for us to think about ideas of how we can promote a time and space for reflection within our school.  

Mrs Morse our chair of governors worked with us to produce a new cross for the school hall and individual crosses for each classroom from recycled materials.  

This academic year the worship council have performed a small play for our harvest festival and also organised a collection to the food bank in Cirencester of 110 items. For remembrance day the congregation of St.Lawrences church in Cirencester knitted poppies that the children made into a wreath that was laid at the village war memorial as part of the service led by Rev. Roger Scoones. The worship council also placed crosses at the base of the peace tree on the village green whilst Helen Grace from the Salvation Army played the last post.  

The worship council held a very successful Christingle service.
