Worship at Bishop Rawstorne Academy

Flowing from our Christian Vision – Worship permeates all areas of our school life. Whilst we are a deeply Christian School, we are distinctively Anglican in terms of our denomination. This is reflected in our Collective Worship as well as our Worship on Wednesday.

 

Year Group Worship

These are times that traditionally we called Assemblies. They still contain notices and give the Heads of Year the opportunity to speak to year groups. But the key feature of these times is worship. They begin with a candle being lit, and then a Clergy Chaplain, a member of staff, a tutor group or a visitor delivers a time of thought, reflection, and prayer to engage students in exploring the theme for that week.

 

Worship Services

These take place several times during the year. They are times to celebrate key school events and Christian festivals. These are Christian in nature and content, and aim to meet each student where they are on their walk of faith. Celebrating together is a foundation feature of our school and brings us together as a community to worship God.
