Our daily act of Christian Collective Worship strengthens and supports the Christian distinctiveness of our school, reaffirms our vision and associated values of Love, Forgiveness, Trust, Courage and Respect and celebrates the central role that each person has to play in our community.Our worship is inspired by the Christian understanding of God as Trinity; this includes belief in God, the source of all being and life, belief in Jesus who reveals God’s love by his life, death and resurrection and belief in the Holy Spirit who makes the presence of Jesus known in the world. Collective worship provides a space for reflection and prayer.
What does Worship look like at St Margaret's at Hasbury?
Worship is led by a member of staff, children and visitors and is an important part of the school day. Using a variety of sung worship, prayer, drama, storytelling, videos, liturgy and art the community is encouraged to reflect on the teachings of the Bible and on big questions about what it means to be human and the role God might play in that.
Worship at St Margaret's is inclusive and open to all, those with Christian faith, other faith or none. Together we come as a community to enjoy a time of peace, wonderment and contemplation. It is interactive, all who are present are encouraged to take part where they feel able and contribute their own thoughts and ideas when possible
Our close relationship with St Margaret's Church enables us to attend Eucharist Service each term.
We believe our ethos of inclusion and respect for all members of our school community enables children and parents/ carers to feel our acts of worship are an integral and important part of what makes a church school both distinctive and special.
