Worship Conference for Aspiring Student Leaders

Mr Demet and our Chaplain Michael, were joined by four Year 7 pupils attending the Year 7 Worship Conference for Aspiring Student Leaders at the Wrightington Hotel in Wigan on Wednesday 8th March.

The group were invited to attend this Diocesan conference where young people in Year 7 can explore the important role Collective Worship has in the school day. During the conference there were opportunities to design, create and lead times of reflection and worship using a variety of resources.

In preparation for the conference the pupils were briefed that they would be asked to present their views in response to the overarching enquiry-based question: Is worship important and why?

  • What happens in worship?
  • Why do you like worship?
  • How does worship (assembly) help you?
  • What is your favourite story in the bible and why?
  • Why do you love worship?

The group thoroughly enjoyed the day and left with plenty to reflect upon.
