Collective Worship

Collective worship – Roots and Fruits


We use Roots and Fruits as the main focus 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 Perseverance

and Spring Term 2 is Justice




Perseverance is…. 

Pressing on 

Eager to continue 

Running the race 

Sticking with things 

Encouraging each other to keep going 

Valuing the support of others 

Eyes fixed on the target 

Reaching a goal over time 

Aiming to complete the task 

Not giving up 

Commitment to keep going 

Ending up where you want to be 



Lord Jesus 

Make us more like your disciple Barnabas. 

Help us to, 

Use our eyes to notice, 

Use ours ears to listen, 

Use our voice to encourage, 

And use our hands to help. 


Justice is…. 

Judging what is right 

Understanding what is fair 

Standing up for those who need help 

Trying to listen to both sides 

Informed and wise decisions 

Caring enough to take action 

Equal opportunities for all 




Lord Jesus Christ 

In your own life on earth, you took care to listen well to people, 

especially the people who no one else bothered with. 

You were passionate about seeking justice for everyone. 

Give us wisdom when we need to make decisions. 

Help us not to jump to conclusions but to try to hear both sides, 

giving everyone a chance speak. 

And when we get it wrong, give us the humility and courage to say sorry. 


Space Makers


Space Makers is a resource for schools and churches from the Diocese of Oxford. Accessible to pupils of all faiths and worldviews, five contemplative practices help schools to embrace some of the ancient wisdom of the Christian tradition and, in doing so, assist children to navigate the world around them. Climate anxiety and the vast increase in screen time and exposure to social media seem to be causes of deteriorating mental health in young people.


The ancient contemplative traditions of Christianity, like its secular cousin ‘mindfulness’, have a lot to offer at this time. Space Makers brings five contemplative practices into the life of our schools.
