Collective Worship

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 Friendship

and Summer Term 2 is Respect

 

Friendship is… 

Finding things to do together 

Relying on each other 

Impossible on your own 

Enjoying being together 

Never selfish 

Depending on someone else 

Sharing hopes and dreams 

Happiness and laughter 

Including others 

Precious 

 

 

A prayer for good friendship 

 

Let our friendships be strong, O Lord, 

That they may become a blessing to others. 

Let our friendships be open, O Lord, 

That they may be a haven for others. 

Let our friendships be gentle, O Lord, 

That they may bring peace to others. 

For Jesus’ sake 

Amen 

 

Respect is…. 

Readiness to listen 

Everyone being valued 

Showing appreciation 

Praying for people 

Expressing opinions sensitively 

Caring for our environment 

Treating property carefully 

 

Father God 

Open our eyes to value and appreciate all people. 

Help us to recognise what we have in common 

and respect what makes each of us unique. 

Amen. 

School Prayer

 

Lord,

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,

Amen
