Collective worship – Roots and Fruits
This half-term we have started using Roots and Fruits for our collective worship.
Roots and Fruits provides creative collective worship for primary schools based in Christian values themes over a period of two years. Rooted in Bible teaching, twelve Christian values represent the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life.
The value for the Summer Term 1 is Service
and Summer Term 2 is Truthfulness
Spending time on others
Enjoying giving help
Responsibility in action
I second, you first
Committing to a task
Everyone offering their talents and gifts
Give us willing hearts to serve others with joy
and bring them help and comfort.
Give us humility to accept help and service from others
with thankfulness and grace.
Trustworthy words and actions
Respect for doing the right thing
Uncovering the full picture
Telling it as it is
Having all the facts
God of truth,
We thank you for the peace we feel when we are truthful,
and the way you trouble us inside when we tell lies.
Give us courage to be honest, whatever the cost.
Give me eyes to see the beauty around me;
Give me ears that hear only what is true;
Give me lips which speak kind words;
Give me hands which will always work hard;
Give me a heart to be a loyal friend;
In Jesus’ name,
