Formal Acts of Worship take place on a fortnightly basis with Years 7 & 8 meeting together; Years 9 & 10 gathering together and Years 11-13 meeting in the main hall. This is a time of reflection; reading the Bible: listening to a short talk and a time of intercessory prayer for the World. As students enter the main hall The Trinity Worship Team lead them in and play as they leave.
(Throughout Covid, when we are unable to meet in the main hall, these were delivered within form).
We have four formal services each year, where the whole school community gathers together to celebrate Christmas, Easter, Remembrance, and an end of year Celebration and thanksgiving service.
The Heads of Year Assemblies open with a short prayer, a Bible verse and a thought for the day. Students are encouraged to collectively say The Lord's Prayer together.
Form Worship takes place on Friday mornings. This enables students to explore and participate in acts of reflection and prayer as a class together.
Friday's Form Worship includes a Bitesize Bible reflection. Students are also invited to reflect upon wider world issues and participate in praying for our world in need. From ‘caring for creation’ to understanding about the persecuted church; issues relating to equality and helping those living in poverty. Trinity aims to provide an environment where students are encouraged and supported to put their faith into action - this could be through supporting the Samaritan's Purse Christmas Shoebox Appeal or a Food Bank appeal. Within Friday's form worship, students may also have an opportunity to listen to a hymn or worship song to celebrate God and one another.
‘Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead’ James 2:17
I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving' Psalm 69:30
End of Year Celebration Worship Service
One of our special services of the year is the end of year Celebration Service where as a school we gather together to celebrate God and one another. Each year a special guest is invited to share their faith journey and to encourage our students. We were thankful to have Julian Speroni , Crystal Palace goalkeeper for 15 years who came and share his story of faith at our service in July 2022.
Remembrance Service 2021
In preparation for the service, each form created their own Peace poppy cross which were filled with students' prayers for peace. These shall be framed and returned to each form room, as a visual reminder of Jesus' peace. Our Creative Intervention students also created a beautiful piece of artwork under the special guidance of local Christian artist, Sue Salter.
