At Bishop Lonsdale School we believe that children are able to develop confidently in a safe and secure environment nurtured by the beliefs and teachings of the Christian faith.  We meet together daily as a community to reinforce community values and to worship together, encouraging children to develop a positive learning and caring attitude towards each other.

Worship draws attention to the Anglican and Christian tradition of the school.  We feel that it is important for the children to gain experience of this tradition through prayers, simple liturgy and hymns.


During Worship Club the children think about why Collective Worship is important to them.  Here are a few things that they have said;


'Collective Worship is important because it makes us feel like a school.' 


'It is a time for us all to be together.'


'After the Worship we think about what we have learnt and use it in our lives.'


'Worship makes me feel relaxed, happy and calm.'


Parents/Carers are warmly invited to attend morning worship every Wednesday at 9.05am in the school hall.


In our Visitor's Book one parent wrote, ' The morning Worship was beautiful.  The singing was perfect. A lovely start to the morning' June 2019
