Collective Worship and Reflection

bowsland-logo-smOur School Values are our tree’s roots for a happy and positive school community!

Have a look at some of our assembly reflections – we have great ‘pause points’ when we think about how and why our values are important



Term 1 & 2 2019-2020

Assembly Rota – Term 1 2019-20

Vicar Assembly- What’s the Bible all about? God the creator (Gen 1) The Bible tells us that God made us and we are answerable to him. Rebellion & sin (Fall). The Bible tells us that humanity has rejected God but that he wants us to come back to him.

Vicar Assembly- Jesus (coming to save us) All the way through the Bible points us to Jesus as God’s way to save us and enable us to be friends with God again.

Vicar Assembly- Faith – what is faith? The bible calls us to put our faith in Jesus.

Vicar Assembly- Heaven. The future for those who trust Jesus.

Anger (Mathew 5:21-26) Need a story to hang it on probably. Consider how we deal with anger and how we stop things getting out of hand.

Retaliation (5:38-42) Turn the other cheek (& going the extra mile) Isn’t this about forgiveness and going that bit further with people. Grace.

Love your enemies (5:43-48) Story. Could use the good Samaritan but would be better to find another as we use it else where.

Don’t worry (6:26-34) worry can be a problem in relationships. 

Judging others (7:1-6) Take the plank out of your own eye first. Can become so critical but recognising that we have our own faults is really helpful.

Vicar Assembly- Paul & Jesus: Look at Saul’s change from being a persecutor of Jesus to a follower of Jesus (His conversion in Acts 9) and how he said knowing Jesus was better than anything else (Phil 3)Paul & Barnabas: Look at the lengths Barnabas went to encourage Paul. It was Barnabas who introduce him to the apostles (Acts 9:27) and Barnabas who later brought him back from Tarsus to do missionary work (Acts 11:25). In Acts 15 they had a parting of ways.
