Spiritual Ambassador Day
On Monday 10th January 2022, the worship team took part in a Spiritual Ambassador Day at All Saints Church in Denstone.
The worship teams from our three schools came together for this special day and were led by Alex Wolvers in a day full of creativity and planning!
They learned about prayer spaces and took part in a range of activities that can be used back at their schools for areas of reflection and prayer spaces.
They also planned a worship with the support of Alex and were introduced to some new songs that can be used in worship.
They also gained a greater understanding of what worship is, where we can worship and why we do it.
Lots of ‘Big Questions’ were put to the children and they were encouraged to discuss with each other their thoughts and views.
Linda from our Local Academy Council spent the day with us as did Rev. Gary. Julia, the Chair of our LAC and Jenny, a parent LAC member also popped in for the celebration at the end of the day where certificates were handed out.
All in all a fab day where pupils and adults learnt a great deal!
Hello, my name is Quinn and I am in year 4. I really like being on the worship team because I love going to meetings and talking to visitors about our school about worship. We are like a big family at St Augustine’s and I love it.
Hi my name is Maisy. I am really excited to be on the worship team as I love going to meetings and meeting people that visit our school. We all show our core values by caring about each other.
Hey, my name is Tobias and I like being on the worship team because I like talking to visitors about being at a Christian school and being God’s friends. Our school is a big family, we show love and care and respect for each other just like Jesus told us.
Hey, what’s up! My name is Hugh. I like being on the Worship Team because we have these really cool badges that are purple!

Worship group meeting.
On 28th June Mrs Walker, Mrs Roche and John Harrison (LAC) and our Worship group met with the Worship team at All Saints Denstone. They discussed what activities they had been involved in this year and what each schools core values and vision meant to them. They also planned joint activities for next year. Everyone spoke very well and was involved. The children planned to contact each other via email and to plan to Skype each other in the Autumn term.
Everyone shared a biscuit, a drink and welcomed each other saying ’Shalom’.
It was lovely to see how even though each school had differing visions and core values, their belief and strength through Christianity was woven through everything they do.
