Collective worship – Roots and Fruits
Each term we use 'Roots and Fruits' for our collective worship.
Roots and Fruits provides creative collective worship for primary schools based in Christian values themes over a period of two years. Rooted in Bible teaching, twelve Christian values represent the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life.

You first, me last.
Dear Lord, teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labour and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do your will.

God of compassion,
You care for us more than we could ever care for anyone.
Thank you that you sent Jesus, the Good Shepherd,
to bring us back to you.
Thank you that you come and find us whenever we feel
lost or alone.
We are very fortunate to be situated next door to All Saints Church and share a very special relationship with it.
