Worship at St James
At St James, we aspire to ensure that collective worship is inclusive, invitational and inspirational. To achieve this, we underpin our worship offer through our Christian vision of “With God, there is no limit to what you can do. There is no obstacle you can’t overcome. Through Him, all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26.
Our Christian values of respect, peace, love, forgiveness, honesty and hope are also rooted into collective worship. We aim to ensure children and adults encounter the teachings of Jesus and the Bible and develop an understanding of the Christian belief in the trinitarian nature of God. We aim to develop both children and adults spiritually by providing opportunities for prayer, stillness, worship and reflection. We aim to develop the skills of children and adults in the planning, delivery and evaluation of worship to find ways to continually improve the offer of worship in our school.

Our School Prayer
Each day is a new beginning
so start it with a smile.
Give us the strength and courage
to do things that are worthwhile,
Like loving and forgiving
and having friends to spare,
To make somebody happy
and show them that you care.
Help us work together
every single day,
So that we dream, believe, learn, achieve,
in our special St James way.
