Your first point of contact for information about and training on Collective Worship is Helen Matter.
In this diocese we recommend a ‘values’ overview for planning Collective Worship themes, integrating these with the annual round of Christian festivals.
We also recommend that schools talk with their local churches about having Open the Book teams to visit. For more please click here.
Most of our schools use ‘Values for Life’, a three-year programme produced by Gloucester Diocese with an ever-increasing range of support materials. This resource has been so popular, it has now sold out; it's successor is called Roots and Fruits. For more please click here.
