On Thursday 23rd November, the Collective Worship Council took the opportunity to share our Christian Value of ‘Peace’ within our local community at the Cedars care home. Once again, our councillors were filled with amazing ideas and stories to share.
The Collective Worship Council planned and prepared their own worship together, basing it this time on the Bible story of ‘The Stilling of the Storm’. Not only was the story shared but also the councillors discussed how the theme of peace and what it means to them.
The council also recited our memory verse for this half of the term and asked the reflection question to the residents, “What does peace mean to you?”
Our children aspired to make the worship inclusive to all; invitational by offering for those to join into the act of worship if they wished.
The Collective Worship Council closed their worship by sharing prayers they had written themselves based on the theme of ‘Peace Today’; we also explained different elements of our Collective Worship to the residents and their relevance.
Following this, the children led an activity with the residents, and all participated in the craft of making Christmas cards which enabled the children and residents to further develop their spirituality through crafting. We finished with an enthusiastic rendition of ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas.’
