Once a term, Rev Lis Ward leads our whole school Collective Worship. Through telling Bible stories using props and interactive resources, Rev Ward helps us to explore the concept that God will never turn His back on us and grapple with how to engage with the Holy Spirit. Rev Ward has become a warm and friendly part of our family who offered great stability to our community during turbulent and uncertain times at St Nicholas Church, Skirbeck, when she acted as a 'stand-in' whilst we excitedly awaited the arrival of our new incumbent, Father John.
Open the Book (OtB) is a project which offers primary school children an opportunity to hear key Bible stories, from a team of Christians from local churches, who present the stories during assemblies/acts of Collective Worship. Each presentation takes around 10–15 minutes and can be incorporated into a wider school assembly, or can stand alone. It is a three-year rolling programme with an additional, but optional year of material based on Christian Values for schools.
We are lucky enough to welcome the 'Open The Book' team from Holy Trinity Church a few times a year when they transform our hall into a place of entertainment, enjoyment and engagement! Barbara and Dave lead their team of local volunteers through Bible stories which bring our school values to life!
