HAPPY TUESDAY YEAR 4!!! 😀
Ideas for worship at home
As you think about making time each day for worship, you might start by making yourself a prayer table or corner – somewhere that you can be still, comfortable but still, not distracted by anything going on around you.
You might want to set up a “table” – a real one or the top of a chest of drawers or even an upturned box, cover it with a cloth if you can and maybe place your Bible on it, maybe your Rosary beads or a crucifix if you have them and if Mum and Dad are happy, a candle which you can light as you pray.
Plan your worship time…
How will it start – maybe lighting the candle, asking that the Light of Jesus represented by that candle may be in your heart…
You might want to start with a prayer – use our School prayer book for inspiration and ideas.
Read a passage from the Bible. The Gospels are always good to read. We are still in the season of Easter and the Readings this year come from John’s Gospel.
Take time to stop and think about what the Gospel writer is saying to you about Jesus and maybe decide on soemthing that you are going to do to change the way you behave or think about things to match Jesus’ teaching.
You could sing a hymn that you know or find one on the internet to sing along to and take the time for prayer.
Pray for yourself, for your family, for your friends. Pray for our doctors and nurses and all those who are working so hard now to keep us all safe and well. Pray for our world.
Prayers for use at home
and there are plenty of our school prayers in the School prayer book
Here are some prayers related to our Golden threads

Week 8 of Home learning:
Task 1: YOUNG VOICES POWER IN ME SINGING event: https://www.youngvoices.co.uk/powerinme
Task 3: Watch the excellent videos for children on the Young Voices at Home YouTube Channel to help you learn the song and develop your singing in the lead up to the live concert on June 2nd. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciZj77kO8cY&list=PLFTl8WEjeyzLq8NbSzUVFqWabGiEP3YuP
Task 4: Participate in the live concert on Tuesday 2nd June at 2.30pm from home or in school! Details will be sent out by Young Voices to parents who have signed up here: https://www.youngvoices.co.uk/powerinme
Young Voices have suggested that you can send in recordings of your family singing together but YOU MUST HAVE YOUR PARENTS’ OR LEGAL GUARDIAN’S PERMISSION TO DO THIS. You do not need to do this to join in the concert. If your parents allow you, film in a suitable place such as your garden or living room – not your bedroom; you can dress up but always check with your parents that you are wearing suitable clothes. Stay safe!
