The Holy Trinity Church of England Secondary School

Collective Worship

As a church school we are committed to providing a daily collective act of worship which is relevant, inclusive and which provides students with the opportunity to reflect.  This takes place within the daily tutor time. 

 

This year our collective worship is built around six key stories from the New Testament.  These provide themes for our assemblies and the resources used in Tutor Time:

 

  • Jesus Calls his disciples. Mt 4:18-22
  • Parable of theGood Samaritan. Jn15:12-17
  • Parable of the Prodigal Son. Mt2:1-12
  • Parable of the Lost Sheep. Mt 18:10-14
  • Parable of the Sower & Seeds. Mt 13:1-23
  • Parable of the Friend at Midnight. Acts 2

 

Assemblies are held weekly, led by members of the Senior Leadership Team, Year Leaders, the Chaplain and invited guests.  Since March 2020, due to COVID restrictions, these assemblies have been recorded.  To provide a flavour of these assemblies please follow the links below.

Every day in Tutor Time the tutor will select an appropriate item from the resources produced by the Chaplain to share with the students.  Tutor Time will always end with a prayer.  An example of the weekly resources that the Chaplain produces is included below.

Every half term there is a service of Holy Communion after school held in the Chapel.  Both staff and students are invited to attend this.
