Collective Worship

Collective worship – Roots and Fruits


We use Roots and Fruits for our collective worship.


Roots and Fruits provides creative collective worship for primary schools based in Christian values themes over a period of two years. Rooted in Bible teaching, twelve Christian values represent the fruit that grows as the teaching is lived out in everyday life.


The value for the Spring Term 1 is Courage

and Spring Term 2 is Forgiveness


Courage is… 

Carrying on when things are difficult 

Overcoming fear 

Understanding and facing a challenge 

Risking being our of your comfort zone 

Always believing in God’s promises 

Going for a goal 

Empowered by encouragement 



A prayer for courage 


Father God, 

Help us to be strong and courageous. 

Help us to speak out for others. 

Help us to stand up and be counted. 

Help us to do the right thing, not just the easy thing. 


Have Courage and Be Fearless

Forgiveness is… 

Forgetting the hurts 

Offering a new beginning 

Restoring a friendship 

Given and received 

Identifying responsibility 

Valuing the truth 

Ending an argument 

Not holding a grudge 

Encouraging honesty 

Saying sorry 

Starting again 


A forgiveness prayer 


Lord Jesus 

Help us to be ready to show forgiveness to others, 

As you are ready to show forgiveness to us.
