eD 28 How to Craft Collective Worship


Many clergy and visitors are invited to lead collective worship in schools, perhaps with little training in teaching or about the school learning context. Many teachers lead collective worship with little grounding in the leading of worship. 

This booklet is written for them and for anyone who is looking for a quick guide to the practicalities of leading school worship. Like any craft, leading school worship takes time and attention to become expert. This booklet’s aim is to invite leaders to become reflective practitioners.
