Bible Story in year groups

As a school, we acknowledge that occasionally the format of our daily act of worship may be altered to accommodate changes within the school day. 

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.

Father Frank Daly from St. Peter's Catholic Church
Father Frank Daly from St. Peter's Catholic Church delivered an assembly and spoke about the different ways that people can bring light to each others lives, this could be through simple acts of kindness such as drawing someone a picture or giving someone a compliment. He spoke about a charity called ‘Mary’s Meals’ which allows children in deprived parts of the world go to school by giving them a hot meal. This charity has bought light to those children.

Children at Townlands

Our children also lead Collective Worship.

British Values Assembly
4LW were proud to perform their assembly about British values. The children had created bunting and portraits of the Queen and they had performed a song called, 'Be The Change.' The children also created a video showing how kind we can be to each other. ​
​Carol Service
Parents and carers joined us in a wonderful carol service led by our children and Rev Martin Castle. The whole school sang a range of traditional carols such as Once in Royal David's City, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Away In a Manger and We Three Kings to name but a few. Children told the story of Christmas through carols and bible readings.
Remembrance Assembly
Class 2LM were given the responsibility of planning and delivering the assembly for Remembrance. The children showed respect, courage and confidence and delivery a very poignant assembly to mark and centenary of World War One. Every class wrote a prayer and read it during the service and placed a poppy on Townlands Poppy obelisk. The last post was played by Mrs Whittacker on her trumpet. Class 2LM sang a moving song about World Peace.
