This year the Worship Council are made up of members from Year 1 to Year 4. They meet with Mrs Bennett regularly.
The Worship Council plays a vital role in the development of worship within our school.
The aims are:
- To develop ways of ensuring that each and every member of St Peter’s CE Academy has time and space to think, reflect and connect with themselves, others and God.
- To play an active part in the planning and deliverance of pupil-led worship.
- To identify children who they catch demonstrating our school vision and values.
Even if a child is not a Worship Council representative they play an important part in demonstrating daily the Christian values that we are proud of. All children are encouraged to spot others carrying out the school values that show our Christian character and ethos. If anyone spots examples of our values being carried out they can write what they have seen on a post-it note and add it to our values board in the hall.
Pupil Led Worship
The Worship Council, helped by other children, regularly led whole school worship.
Spiritual Ambassador Day
On Monday 10th January 2022, the worship team took part in a Spiritual Ambassador Day at All Saints Church in Denstone. The worship teams from our three schools came together for this special day and were led by Alex Wolvers in a day full of creativity and planning! They learned about prayer spaces and took part in a range of activities that can be used back at their schools for areas of reflection and prayer spaces. They also planned a worship with the support of Alex and were introduced to some new songs that can be used in worship. They also gained a greater understanding of what worship is, where we can worship and why we do it.
Lots of ‘Big Questions’ were put to the children and they were encouraged to discuss with each other their thoughts and views.
Linda from our Local Academy Council spent the day with us as did Rev. Gary. Julia, the Chair of our LAC and Jenny, a parent LAC member also popped in for the celebration at the end of the day where certificates were handed out.
All in all a fab day where pupils and adults learnt a great deal!
