Friday 22nd January 2021 - Celebration Worship

It's Friday - it's time to CELEBRATE! Your teachers are SO proud of every single one of you! Well done St Mark's.

Thursday 21st January 2021

How can we show our thanks to those who help us?


The celebration for NHS staff, formally known as ‘Clap for Carers’, returned under the new name of ‘Clap for Heroes’ on the 7th of January, announced by the initiative's founder, Annemarie Plas. The weekly applause for front-line NHS staff and other key workers ran for 10 weeks during the UK's first coronavirus lockdown last spring. This time the initiative is celebrating not just NHS and key workers but also extends to home-schooling parents, those who are shielding and all who are pushing through this period.

How do soldiers help us in times of need?

Armies in the UK and all over the world have played a key part in supporting governments and helping in many ways throughout the pandemic and it’s likely that their role will continue in 2021. In early autumn, the military helped to organise mass testing in Liverpool. In December, 1,100 military personnel were sent to help thousands of lorry drivers spending Christmas Day stranded at Dover. Most recently, the Army have been helping secondary schools and colleges in England to set up mass coronavirus testing for their pupils. So, how do soldiers help us in times of need? Click here to watch a discussion about it.

Should anyone be allowed to buy a pet?

Today's worship is designed for you to think about this question: Should anyone be allowed to buy a pet?

Click here to watch the discussion by clicking 'watch our virtual assembly'.

Here are some things to talk about with others in your class or at home with a grown up later:

Do you have any pets? If you do, do you enjoy being a pet owner?

How do you take care of your pet? Is it a lot of work? If not, would you like to own a pet?

Why do you think lots of people may have bought pets at the start of the lockdown period?

Do you think that there should be age restrictions or other rules on who can buy pets?

This week is Christian Aid week. We focus our worship on 'reflection at home' and focus on the candle. We often light candles as part of or collective worship together, this week use these worships to help  you think about us all being together.

We have included an activity sheet for you below for Christian Aid week.  

You can use the picture of the candle to focus on during reflection this week and to  pray, if you wish. 

Remember: NEVER light candle. Candles should only be lit by adults and supervised by adults.
