Educating for life in all its fullness - John 10:10

Collective Worship

Week Six

This week as we are in what is called ‘Holy Week’ and with Palm Sunday behind us we look to the events of the most important Christian Festival.

We shall be celebrating with our outside Easter service on Wednesday and our theme of this Easter service is ‘Rescuer.’

Christians believe that Jesus came to rescue or save people by dying on the cross and bringing forgiveness so that, with the taking away of sin, people are free to know God.

Throughout His time on earth, Jesus came to recue people from other things too- illness, fear, loneliness and we will be exploring this in dance and poetry.

Christians believe that Jesus  came to bring freedom from sin and fullness of life now and for ever. We shall be focusing on this as we hear again the Easter story and celebrate together.

Worship for week Five.

This week we are remembering the story behind Palm Sunday which we celebrate at the end of the week.

It is known as ‘The triumphal entry,’ when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and was hailed a s a king. ‘ Only a few days later the crowds would have turned against Jesus and after crying ‘Hosanna’ would be calling for Jesus to be crucified.

Our focus today is on the message of peace that Jesus came to bring by dying on the cross so that we can be forgiven and know peace with God and with each other.

Songs: KS1 Blessed be the king who comes

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-39h0xYqdE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTmbTuutBgg

Discussion questions:

  • I wonder what this story tells you about who Jesus is and what Jesus is like?
  •  I wonder why people found palm branches and shouted ‘Hosanna’?
  •  Perhaps this clip will help you to think about this in relation to recent events https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52 063775 I
  • I wonder what makes you clap and cheer?

Art prayer activity :

For prayer/reflection: Make palm ‘branches’ by cutting out 4- 5 hand shapes from green paper or any other paper you have at home and joining them together, slightly overlapping each other. Add a lolly stick handle or use a stick and secure it with sticky tape. Use one of the hand shapes and on each finger, write something to be grateful for (cheer about) or use your own hand to count your 5 ideas.

.

A prayer :

Lord Jesus, Thank you for giving us signs and symbols to help us remember who you are and what you have done for us.,

 As we travel through the Easter journey together, give us a fresh understanding of your teaching and your love for us. AMEN

Week Four : Jesus is amazed by the Centurion’s faith

 Luke 7:1-10 The Centurion’s servant

This week we hear the story of The Centurion’s servant and how Jesus is amazed at his faith. Jesus, always full of compassion and love, heals the centurion’s servant from without even going into the Centurion’s house.

We can show compassion with our words, our actions and by praying for people locally and across the world.

Do look at your class reflective corner posters and write prayers for those in need.

Songs.

KS1 Prayer is like a telephone

KS 2 Father we adore you

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUYim0gRBXQ

 

Discussion questions:

As we look ahead to the journey toward Jerusalem and the events of Easter, this is a week to look back and remember Incarnation (Jesus, God as man) and Gospel (the good news that Jesus brings) and link it to Salvation (the ‘Easter’ concept).

  • I wonder why Jesus is amazed at the centurion’s faith?
  •  I wonder what you have experienced recently that has made you say ‘Wow!’?
  • I wonder why Jesus was so surprised in this story?
  •  If Jesus could be surprised by people, I wonder what this might teach us?
  • I wonder if you have any questions to ask?
  • I wonder if you have learned anything about yourself?
  •  I wonder if this story helps you to understand and accept the amazement that you feel?

 

Reflection:

Jesus recognises the power of the centurion’s faith – this is a song about how a little faith can do great things:

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H PylxzfN-Oo

 

You may like to explore compassion further:

 

Have a look at this story in which Jesus feels and shows compassion

https://www.freebibleimages.org/illustrati ons/feeding-5000/

or

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyXP[1]kQfooU

 

Discuss:

  • I wonder why, when Jesus saw the needs of the people, the Bible says that he had compassion on them?
  • He performed a miracle and fed them with 5 loaves & 2 fish because they were hungry. I wonder what difference you think it makes to Christians to know that Jesus showed compassion when he saw that the people who had followed him into the hills were hungry and needed food?
  • (Remember, the word ‘compassion’ means to suffer with others) I wonder if you have any questions to ask?
  • I wonder if you have learned anything about yourself?
  •  I wonder if this story helps you to understand and accept the compassion that you feel?
  • I wonder when you have felt compassion for the suffering of others? Look out into our suffering world and pray for situations that need our compassion:

Worship Week Three:

Today we think about the words we say to each other as we read good advice from the book of James about taming the tongue!

How will you use your words today? Will you  help and encourage others , give good advice, include everyone or sometimes just be quiet to allow others to speak or tell us what is bothering them .

We can use our words to pray for different needs, to thank God for all that we have, to praise Him for the beautiful world around us or to say sorry, so that we can have a fresh start.

Do look at your reflective corners in your classroom as you think about  talking to God and how you might use kind words to build people up today.

You may like to look at this Psalm.

Psalm 65: 9-10

He waters the earth to make it fertile. The rivers of God will not run dry! He prepares the earth for his people and sends them rich harvests of grain. 10 He waters the furrows with abundant rain. Showers soften the earth, melting the clods and causing seeds to sprout across the land.

 I wonder what this verse from Psalm 65 says to you?

Prayer activity.

  • Think of all the ways in which we use water and give thanks for our easy access to clean water.
  • pray for those working with those to provide clean water such as TEAR Fund and Water Aid.

Week One. This week we are thinking about Lent and the temptations that Jesus faced in the desert.

We are also thinking of how we use the time in Lent to think more deeply, learn more about the Christian faith and pray for our needs and the needs of the world.

Here are some activities that you might like to do in the classroom or at home this week.

 

Prayer Activity: What Jesus did then looks ahead to Easter but we can have a picture in our minds about what Jesus did.

 Wrap a bandage around a globe with a horizontal band around the equator and a vertical band from pole to pole to give a cross shape. Jesus battled with all the bad stuff of the world and took it to the cross with him. But Christians believe Jesus came back to life again (unbandage the world). So, Jesus can help us one by one, make a difference in this world for the better. The Bible says God has a job for everyone to do, to mend this hurting world. Spend time praying for our hurting world.

Prayer for ourselves –Light your AOW candle and display the cross Thank you, Lord that you love us and hear us when we pray

-we are sorry for things we have done that have hurt you and others. We have not loved you or others as much as we could Lord,

we are sorry we have not helped others as Jesus helped us Lord,

-we are sorry we have been impatient Lord, we are sorry we have been angry Lord,

-we are sorry we have been jealous of others Lord,

- we are sorry we have told lies Lord, we are sorry .

 Hear us and help us, Lord work through us so that we can share your goodness and love in the world. Show us the joy and new life that Jesus brings. Amen

Prayer for the world. Children can write a prayer for the reflective corner. God of justice, give me the strength to do what I know is right. Lead me to help others and to encourage those I meet to do the same, so that all people may flourish Amen

Week Six 8/2/21

Before looking at the AOW please remind children of what they know about  Captain Sir Tom Moore.

In our collective worship today, we will remember the life of a remarkable man Captain Sir Tom Moore, who died last Tuesday 2nd aged 100. I don’t suppose there’s anyone in the country who doesn’t recognise his face – yet we all know that he didn’t intend to become famous: he just wanted to do his bit (like so many) to help the NHS, with the aim of raising £1000. His 100 laps around his garden have now raised over £33 million.

Discuss:We are also thinking about perseverance and hope which we have needed during this lockdown and just as Sir Tom inspired many, we can talk about how we can be a blessing to others around us. 

Prayer. Here is one of the prayers prepared by the diocese .

God of comfort

We bring to you all that is in our hearts at this sad time.

Thank you for the life of this remarkable man, who reminded us that ‘one step has the power to inspire one hundred more’.

We pray your comfort for Captain Tom’s family and that they will find strength and hope at this difficult time.

Help us to bring the same hope that he gave, wherever we go.

Amen

Thank you.

Worship Week Five  1/2/21

This week we are looking at the story of how Jesus met Zacchaeus  in (Luke 19:1-10).

You may want to watch this clip too

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5 BjtbJFz2ug

 

As you talk about the AOW you may like to include in your discussion that In the gospels, Jesus tells us that the Gospel (good news) includes a promise that when we make mistakes and we all do), it’s what we do after that makes the biggest difference. We can get back on track and put it right if we choose to.

  • Sometimes Jesus really surprised people- what do you think the crowd made of the fact that Jesus was eating with Zacchaeus ?
  • Use the Lord’s Prayer – focus especially on the words ‘Forgive us our trespasses (sins) as we forgive those who trespass (sin) against us.’ It is a constant rhythm of forgiving and being forgiven that gets us back on track. What does it mean to forgive and be forgiven?

A prayer you may like to use

Dear God, Thank you for knowing us, welcoming us and loving us. We think of those who feel unloved or left out. Please show us if any of our family, friends or school community are feeling this way, and help us to show them love and kindness as Jesus did at the well and in Jericho. Amen.

Worship Board .Our focus in our reflective corners this week is the  koinonia school poster where the children can thank God for the koinonia we enjoy as a school, ask for continued team work and sharing and be ready to admit we are sorry when we are wrong and always be ready to forgive others.

Worship Week Four 25/1/21

This week we are looking at the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman. You may also like to watch these animated versions with

of the Woman at the Well with your class during the week.

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6 Vf3rqnoG5c

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p NxNWv6KZ7s

 

Questions:

1.Many Christians believe that Jesus’ words ‘living water’ refers to the unending and life-giving love of God. I wonder how Jesus showed this to the woman he met?

2.I wonder how Jesus ‘stood by’ the Samaritan woman?

3.I wonder who is standing by you?

4. I wonder who you could stand with?

5. I wonder how our school and local communities could be even better at including all and helping all to feel loved and welcomed?

6. Can you think of ways we can help our local community eg food banks?

 

A prayer you might like to use.

Dear God, Thank you for knowing us, welcoming us and loving us. We think of those who feel unloved or left out. Please show us if any of our family, friends or school community are feeling this way, and help us to show them love and kindness as Jesus did at the well. Amen.

Worship Board .Our focus in our reflective corners this week is the  Koinonia church poster. We can pray for our church in Chiddingstone and particularly for Revd Bill MacDougall and his wife Izzie an they serve our community. Good to remember that the church and the newly formed Parents’ prayer group led by Izzie pray for us as a school especially in these challenging times.

Week Three .

This week we are thinking about who were Jesus’ disciples and how they learnt from Jesus through what he said and did and  through the stories he told. Our focus is the story of the Good Samaritan which starts with a question ‘ Who is my neighbour?’ This is the story that underpins our vision at Chiddingstone and challenges us with these questions;

  • Who is my neighbour at school, at home and in the local community?
  • What can we do to show love to our neighbours today?
  • How can we show love to our global ‘neighbours?’
  • Sometimes loving our neighbour is difficult; why?  What do you think Jesus would do?

As we look at the map in our reflective corners you might like  to pray for Joe Biden as he is inaugurated as president  on Wednesday.

Ideas for discussion:

  • I wonder how you made your first friends?
  • I wonder what we can learn from our meeting with Simon Peter in the gospel of Matthew? Perhaps it is that God knows the best you can be and wants to help you to become that.
  • How can you be good news today to those around you ?
  • What are the names of Jesus’ disciples? Can you find out about what sort of work they did before meeting Jesus?

Week One : Epiphany

These Key Stage acts of Worship celebrate Epiphany.

 Epiphany means ‘showing’ or ‘revelation’ and celebrates the story of the wise men from the East following the star to Bethlehem where they give gifts of significance (gold, frankincense and myrrh) to Jesus.

At the end of the AOW I suggest listening to or joining in with the carol  ‘We Three Kings.’

 Key stage two pupils you might like to unpack some of the words and phrases if you have time.

 

This version has the words:

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cst2_-DEp_c

This one has moving cartoon characters and singing so if you would like the words see below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68k6dzdzoto&t=4s

 

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star

CHORUS:

Oh, star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light
We three kings, we three kings

Born a king on Bethlehem's plain
Gold I bring to crown Him again
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign

CHORUS:

Myrrh is mine, it's bitter perfume
Breaths a life of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding dying
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb

 

Frankincense to offer have I

Incense owns its Deity nigh

Prayer and praising, all men raising

Worship Him God most high

Week 7

We shall be thinking about angels as messengers - not only in the story of Mary and the angel Gabriel but also in  the story of Elizabeth and Zechariah as we prepare for our Nativity recording on Wednesday.

Do practise 'Thanks and praise ' which we will be singing at the end of our nativity and any songs that your class will be singing too.

A verse to reflect on:

 

The angel said to them, “Don’t be afraid, because I am bringing you some good news. It will be a joy to all the people.  Today your Saviour was born in David’s town. He is Christ, the Lord. Luke 2: 10.11

Happy Christmas everyone!

Week Six

We shall be hearing about Ruth, the mother of Obed who in turn was the grandfather of King David who of course is in Jesus' family tree.

It is a story of rescue and faithfulness and is a reminder for  Christians that Jesus, by dying on the cross, came to rescue people from the wrong things that cause a barrier between them and God. 

The story of Ruth, a member of Jesus' family tree,( the Jesse tree) is a reminder of God's faithfulness and Ruth's trust in God .

As we prepare for our nativity please sing the songs below.

This week we shall be thinking about fairness and being committed to creating a fairer world whether we are at home, school , enjoying these beautiful Autumn days or thinking of those who don't have enough food, shelter or a safe place to live. One of the things we can always do is to pray, so do use your reflective corners to write prayers to use in your class worship. This week our worship board poster has the title 'Hope for the world.'

This week we are looking at vulnerability- it is not a commonly used word and might not seem easy to explore with children – but it is something we all experience and see in the world,. Christians are reminded throughout the Bible that God’s power and grace is enough, that even in times of vulnerability, we will not be left abandoned or alone.

 

We will be looking at the story of Mary anointing Jesus and showing what she believed even with people who were critical of Jesus and followers of Jesus. We shall also be exploring how it is good to ask for help from people we trust and ask God to help us when we feel vulnerable.

Please keep the conversation going with your class all week as you unpack the meaning of vulnerability for ourselves and others.

 

The song for both Key Stages is :

Be bold ,be strong
