Class Collective Worship

Supporting primary pupils’ wellbeing in the pandemic – now updated with four more acts of worship added

Godly Play UK, in association with the Church Schools of Cambridge, is pleased to support the launch of a new, free resource.

Developed by teacher-researcher Elisabeth Sutcliffe, this draws on a Godly Play style and process. Its approach helps to create a different atmosphere within the classroom that provides for reflection as a class and individually. Using story, wondering and imaginative response time, pupils’ spiritual wellbeing is given focus and value. 

This offers teachers accessible, simple-to-follow material that requires almost no additional resources.

And it offers pupils (of all faiths and none) space to wonder and respond to Covid-19 pandemic challenges and opportunities.

A short guidance video is included, alongside four acts of worship (more to be released soon). 

Covid-19 information

Core Training Courses up until the end of 2020 have been postponed. Please check back here for further updates.

Because of the uncertainty over when restrictions on movement and gatherings will be lifted, we are not putting up new course dates for now. However, we are still planning courses for late 2020 and into 2021, so please do get in touch and leave your contact details with us. Email:

We’d be glad to send you course details that may be of interest to you, as soon as they become available.
