Our Worship Crew consists of children from years 4, 5 and 6.  Members change every term so that lots of children have the opportunity to take a leadership role in this important area of our school community's life. 


The role of the Worship Crew is:

  • To meet regularly together to evaluate collective worship, saying what they think is working well and what they think can be improved​

  • To share worship ideas with other Worship Crew members, the class team and the class teacher​

  • To share worship themes and prayers with our parents, carers and our local community​

  • To find out what other children in our school think about collective worship ​

  • To sometimes lead worship and encourage, help and support friends to lead worship too!  

In September 2022, our Worship Crew completed 'Worship Crew Application Forms', stating why they wanted to be a part of this leadership team and what they thought about collective worship.  Here are some of their responses:


Why do you want to be a member of the Worship Crew?

  • It is good to talk to people about Jesus.  I want to tell others about Jesus. 
  • I love worship.
  • I like praying. 
  • I want to encourage other children to lead worship. 
  • I would like to write prayers and share them with the school. 
  • I hope everyone knows that Jesus is our Lord. 
  • I love spreading the Word of God. 
  • Worship is a very important thing to think about, especially all of the brilliant things Jesus did for us all. 
  • I love interacting with others and asking questions about God. 


What is your favourite part of collective worship and why?

  • Praying because Jesus sacrificed His life for us. 
  • The worship songs we sing. They make me feel happy. 
  • Praying because I like the quietness while praying to Jesus. 
  • The songs because I like to hear people sing. 
  • When we sing because I love to sing lots of different songs and express myself.  I enjoy having the experience of singing with everyone. 
  • I enjoy listening to stories from the Bible because I like learning more about the four Gospels. 
  • I like the stories because I like to tell them to my friends. 
  • Learning about Jesus is so fun for me!
  • I like the praise worship songs because it gives you a time to give Jesus a big thank you. 
  • The prayers and the songs because they remind me of our wonderful God and our saviour Jesus. 
  • When we talk with a partner. 
  • The stories of God because they teach me the values of life. 
  • Prayer time because it is so peaceful. It helps me reflect and clear my mind and I like listening to the Word of God. 
  • I love that we get quotes from the Bible that I can follow. 

During our Harvest Family Worship at Christ Church, some Worship Crew members helped us understand the story of 'The Sower and the Seed' by reading a dramatised version of Mark 4:1-20.  We learnt that Christians try hard to be like the final seed, the seed flourishing in good soil.  We know that Christians may read the Bible, go to Church to worship with other Christians and pray to God to help them flourish too.
