Children’s ministry is one of my passions and part of the role of a vicar and the church is to engage with children through church, school and community activities. This can be done in various ways:
in school through Collective Worship assemblies, involvement in Religious Education and other aspects of school life.
in church through family and child centred activities and services
in the community by linking in to children’s groups such as Scouts and Toddler groups
How do you discover the ‘heart’ of a school? Where do you go to feel its pulse, learn about its values and catch its life? Among several possible answers surely a favourite would be “assembly” or more correctly the ‘daily act of collective worship’. It is here that a sense of community is nourished, here that shared values are expressed, here that everyone’s contributions are celebrated. In Church of England schools it is also here that God is given honour and is worshipped.
I embrace technology and have over the years learned to use it to develop a Collective Worship library of PowerPoint presentations. Below are a selection of Collective Worship assemblies that I have developed and presented.
Captain Tom - Inspiration
Through this website I will try to share my views and experiences of Meeting God in the Everyday.
I am a wife, sister, friend and in the past I have been a nurse in the NHS, an Acupuncturist and since 2014 I've been an ordained minister in the Church of England. At the moment I am the vicar of four rural parishes in South Warwickshire.
