Acts of Worship
Each day at Chevening St Botolph's we hold an Act of Worship for the whole school community. Children, staff and volunteers come together as a school family to worship, pray, explore the bible and learn together.
We follow the Diocesan Worship materials although each day is a little different in focus, leader and style of worship.
Monday, Mrs McLean, our Deputy Head Teacher leads our Act of Worship.
Tuesday, Miss Minnis, our Head Teacher, leads our Act of Worship.
Wednesday, we have Key Stage Act of Worship, led by a Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 teacher; a group of KS2 children also lead an Act of Worship for a group of children, with Mr Qureshi.
Thursday, we have "Prayer and Praise" led by Mrs Robinson.
Friday, we have celebration Worship. This is led by Mrs Edwards, where we encourage one another by celebrating the way in which we have upheld our Christian Values, achieved well in our leaning and used the gifts which God has given us. We focus our prayers around one of our Christian Values.
From time to time, we are fortunate to have guests to lead our worship. We warmly welcome a variety of visitors, including staff from local Churches:
PUPIL LED WORSHIP
At Chevening St Botolph's, we have confident and talented children who regularly lead our Act of Worship.
Each day, the Worship leaders open our celebration by choosing children to light the candle open the Bible, lead a response from the rest of the school and lead the prayers at the end of the worship.
Freddie and Austin help us by ensuring that the technical side of things run smoothly, cueing the music, videos, slide shows and words as they are needed.
We are a group of Chevening Parents and St. Botoloph's Church parishioners who meet weekly just after morning drop-off to pray for the school and the school community. All are welcome.
We currently meet on a Friday morning at 9.00am. Please do come and join us; do remember to sign in at the school office.
We are very happy to receive prayer requests from any member of the school community and our prayers include:
- thanking God for His blessings on the school and the school community
- praying for those who are sick or struggling in some way
- praying for the work of the school as it seeks to develop and be the best it can be
- praying for the staff and upcoming events
- praying for the children as they learn, play and grow.
Inspired by our recent Acts of Worship, Class 6 have devised a Lent challenge for the school community for 2021. There are 40 challenges designed to spread joy and kindness and to find the time to pause and reflect. The challenges can be done in any order - perhaps you could cross them off as you go and see how many you can complete during Lent?
