As a Church School we celebrate a collective act of Worship every day. We are very proud of our Worship which takes place in the hall for whole school collective Worship or in class for class or key stage Worship. We have a small altar, light candles, sign the Trinity, say prayers and sing a hymn or song together. All classes have a chance to present a worship and our vicar Rev David and his wife Lorraine, parishioners and other ministers regularly lead our collective worship. We welcome parents and families in to share our FRIDAY FAMILY WORSHIP every Friday morning at 9.00am. (This is on hold at the moment due to current Government guidance but we are holding virtual Celebration Worships each Friday and these are recorded and shared in our Collective Worship Gallery and class dojo) Some of our parents and parishioners also serve refreshments afterwards.


At the beginning of each Worship we say and sign the trinity and light three candles. In the name of the Father, in the name of the son and in the name of the Holy Spirit.

Worship is such an important part of our lives at St Barnabas. Our children say that Worship is a time of reflection, for praying and singing to God. They say that in Worship they feel peaceful, as one family and they feel that God is with them. Please have a look in our Collective Worship Gallery at some of our Worships this term that have been led by Mrs Ham, Rev David, WOW group, class teachers or individual classes.

These are our Christian Values that were chosen by the children. St Barnabas was known as an encourager so we try to be like St Barnabas and encourage others.

Each week in Celebration Worship class teachers present the class with a Christian Values certificate that they have been focusing on that week and how they have demonstrated that Value.

Our Values

At St Barnabas we are proud of our caring, Christian ethos, underpinned by the Christian values that permeate our teaching and learning and shape every member of our school family. Each week in our classes we focus on a Christian value and explore how it can change the way we live our daily lives. Our class teachers then present the class with an award in our Celebration Worship for demonstrating one of our values and discuss how they have been living life in all its fullness this week.

Our WOW group conducted a survey and we all agreed that the values we feel express our school family are:

  • Courage & Encouragement -Saint Barnabas was a great ‘encourager’,
  • Trust, Forgiveness, Friendship,
  • Service, Generosity and Respect

Mrs Araujo, our RE leader, leads our WOW group which is made up of children who are passionate about improving Worship and involving all of our children and community in prayer and spiritual activities.

This year they are hoping to plan and lead Messy Church sessions each term.

At St Barnabas we love to sing to the Lord during our Worships and we also have a special Songs of Praise Worship each week. Here are some of our favourite songs for you to sing along to at home.

Our God is a great big God

Shine from the Inside Out

My Lighthouse

Build Up

The Butterfly Song

Make a difference

Sing a new song

This is God's World

Rich in Kindness
