Collective Worship

At St George’s we use the Rochester Diocesan Collective Worship planning which is adapted and changed to meet the needs of our school. This ensures that there is a shared understanding of the long and short term planning of worship and this enables continuity.

Worship consists of 4 stages:

Gather – we welcome the community with the lighting of a candle and sharing the peace
Engage –a Bible reading, followed by an activity to engage pupils with the Christian message
Respond – pupils, for discuss, share, reflect and pray
Send – we close with a final prayer and a blessing. Collective Worship ends with the blowing out of the candle.


Each class has Collective Worship Leaders who help plan and lead Collective Worship for their class and the wider school.
