Our worship year
The worship at Cuerden Church School is built around our special Christian values of love, compassion, hope, forgiveness, courage, respect and trust.
Every half term, we look closely at what the Bible can teach us about one particular Christian value and we talk about how it can help us to live according to the teachings of Jesus.
Each week we listen to a story from the Bible as part of God’s Big Story. We journey through the Old and New Testaments looking at God’s plans and purposes from Creation, to the Cross and in the future.
We also learn about the major Christian festivals.
Our Thursday worship is led by the clergy. During Advent and Lent, it takes place in the Methodist Church to emphasise the importance of Christmas and Easter. Our main services at Harvest, Christmas and Easter are held in St Saviour's Church and the whole school works hard to make these celebrations special for the school, friends and family.
We often greet visitors to our worship, especially Eileen and Ian who regularly up date us on the NET School in India which we support. A regular contributor to our worship is Nicky Gleeson, the Methodist Children’s Youth and Family Worker.
Once every school year, each class prepares and presents a special Family Worship. They choose a theme and work hard to include readings, drama, music and Bible verses to share their message with us all. At the end of the school year the children in Year 6 present their own Leavers' Service to mark their moving on from our Cuerden Church School family. Parents, friends, governors and church members are always invited to join us at all these important times.
