Collective Worship

Collective Worship at Townlands Church of England  Primary Academy

Collective Worship at Townlands strengthens and supports the distinctive Christian character of our school, reaffirms our Christian values of faith, honesty, love, friendship, forgiveness, hope and respect. It celebrates the contribution that each child makes to our community. Worship reflects the variety of traditions found in the Church of England as well as other Christian traditions, and recognises and follows the Church of England’s liturgical year. Worship also considers and recognises all world faiths. The daily act of worship is central to our ethos and is supported by all staff and governors.

Local Anglican ministers lead our Collective Worship at certain points in the year.  Members of our local community also contribute to our Collective Worship.
