Worship Council – Visit from Bishop Martin


The whole school is very excited to welcome Bishop Martin this afternoon. He will be meeting the children, answering their questions and leading Collective Worship. The Bishop had tea with the Worship Council.

What a fantastic afternoon with Bishop Martin. He was given a tour around the school by two of our Y6 Ambassadors, before a Q & A session with the Owl class. Then he moved to tea and biscuits with the Worship Council for some refreshments (and another Q & A spot). The Bishop then joined the Rabbit class for a time of quiet reflection. Lastly Bishop Martin joined the whole school for a celebration through Collective Worship. The children asked the Bishop some more questions and Bishop Martin gave a prayer of blessing over us all.

Here are some of the questions that the Owl class asked:

  • Why did you become a Christian? When?
  • What is your job as a Bishop?
  • Do you baptise people?
  • What is your favourite thing to do as a Bishop?
  • What is a ‘normal day’ like?
  • How long have you been a Bishop?
  • What is the hardest thing that you have to do as a Bishop?
  • Have you heard or seen God?
  • Have you met an Archbishop?
