Collective Worship

“Each one of us is different, each one of us is special”

St. Denys Mission Statement is “Each one of us is different, each one of us is special.”   We aim for our Collective Worship to reflect the distinctive nature of our Church of England Controlled Status and the Christian principles on which the school was established.  Developing children as thoughtful individuals, teaching them to be respectful of everyone, to value difference and celebrate the achievements of each other.

Planning for Collective Worship

Collective Worship at St Denys is based around values central to the Christian faith whilst including morals to live by for those of different and no faith.



 The topics followed are outlined in the Gloucester Diocese resource, Values for Life. A two year rolling programme is in place with a different value being looked at each half term

A Christian perspective on trust and belief

Trust is the basis of all stable relationships, including a person’s relationship with God. God’s commitment to humanity is seen in his willingness to trust ordinary people with carrying out his purposes in the world.
