Growing Faith discussion: collective worship in CofE schools

Are you interested in developing the spiritual lives of children and young people? Do you want to explore how children and young people could grow in their relationship with Jesus? Are you keen for children and young people to be worship planners and leaders?

If yes, especially if you are 16-25 years old (older people welcome too!),then please come and join members of the DBE and diocesan youth team at one of our discussion events in November.

In response to the Church of England’s paper ‘Growing Faith’ we are keen to support churches and schools to work together even more to enhance the spiritual lives of children and young people. Collective Worship, of a wholly Christian nature, takes place daily in our CofE schools, a fantastic opportunity for children and young people to reflect on the teachings of Jesus. But how can they be more involved and what happens when they leave primary school?

We are hosting 3 discussion events to hear different views on Collective Worship in CofE schools, in particular: 

- how churches and church schools currently work together 
- your experiences of inspirational worship (that may or may not translate to a school context) 
- how you imagine children and young people can be involved in delivering Collective Worship? 
- how you imagine children may transition to a worshipping community from a CofE school to a community school?

Events are open to: 
Church members 
Parents and carers 
Clergy 
Youth workers 
Headteachers 
Collective Worship Leaders 
Governors 

We are particularly keen to hear from 11-25 year olds
