Reverend Andrew & Reverend Carol Avery
An amazing and incredible part of our team at St Michael's. Our Reverends hope to "build God's kingdom and encourage people of all ages to know God's love for them".
CROPs aim to "communicate and demonstrate Christian truth and life-style to this generation of children and young people".
Mr Little joined our school in September 2022. He leads Choral Worship and continues to lead our school choir. We love to "raise our voices to reach the Lord".
Luke 18: 15-17 'Jesus welcomed children and used them as models of faith when speaking to his Followers'.
In response to this, our Y2 children can become a Junior Collective Worship Leader. They help us to prepare our time together, leading the wave and leading our Trinity opening. You can spot these children in school as they will be wearing an angel badge.
Further up the school, our Y5 write letters at the end of Y4 to ask to become a Collective Worship Leader. Their letters are read by the Collective Worship and Y5 teachers to decide who can become a leader. The children leaders will then help to open the doors to welcome people to our time together, lead a whole school wave, open our time with the Trinity, lead the greet and response and lead our prayer time. We are introducing a 'Collective Worship Leader Programme' where the children can work towards an award, they will be tasked with jobs such as writing and leading their own prayers to planning, preparing and deliver Collective Worship. This will be established in school by the end of the Autumn term 2022.
