Our School Prayer


This is our school.

Let peace dwell here.

Let each room be full of contentment.

Let love abide here:

Love of one another, love of mankind,

Love of life itself and Love of God.

Let us remember, that as many hands build a house

So many hearts make a school.




We share life with people around us by talking to them about things that matter to us, and to them. In the same way, we share life with God by talking to him about things that matter to us and to him. Even though we can't see God we can talk to him through prayer. 

(extract from What every Child Should Know About Prayer by Nancy Guthrie)



At Mellor St Mary we actively encourage children and staff to use prayer in their every day lives. It might be to say thank you, to say sorry, pray for others or to praise - whatever the reason God wants us to talk to him.

Year 1 and Year 2 visited St James Church Altham and took part in a variety of Nativity 'Egg Explorers' activities.

Each week we ask children, visitors and staff to help us reflect on worship in school.


Leading on from our work last term on God's Big Story (Old Testament) we are preparing to look at the New Testament and the life of Jesus. In order to do so we will be exploring the concepts of Service, Truth and Truthfulness as part of our collective worship in school.




The World and all that is in it belong to the Lord: the earth and all who live on it are his.

Psalm 24:1

Summer Term 2018 Worship 


This term, our worship theme is all about the Bible. It is titled 'God's Big Story.' We are looking at the Bible from the beginning to the end and developing our knowledge of Christian Characters both within it and those whom the Bible has inspired to do God's work on earth.

If you are interested in following our stories and themes at home, please have a look at the full God's Big Story Planner on this page.


The Big Frieze by Emma Yarlett helps us to question and make sense of God's Big Story. We use this as inspiration for our worship as well as looking at inspirational 'People of God'. People whom we can still learn from today to help us live our lives and in the way Jesus taught others to do 2000 years ago. 

God's Big Story

We have been looking at the 'Fruits of the Spirit' in school and trying to be more Christ like by acting these out in our every day lives.

Here are some ideas for you to use at home, linked to our worship theme this term.

The whole school celebrated harvest in church, with the children bringing many wonderful harvest gifts. The service ended with two of our children reciting the following prayer from the Bishop:


Father of all,

Inspire those of us who have more than a fair share of harvest bounty

to give generously, so that those communities which have little

And no share of it may flourish too.

For the sake of Your Son

Jesus Christ Our Lord,
