At St Bede's Inter-Church School we appreciate the diversity of worship which our Roman Catholic and Anglican traditions enable.
All students are included in all of our acts of worship, celebrating all that we hold in common and engaging with that which may be new or unfamiliar.
Our regular worship includes whole year group assemblies which take place 2 or 3 days a week, led by the Chaplaincy Team, Senior Leadership Team and visitors, including local clergy and youth workers. Themes often follow the Sunday lectionary and reflect the pattern of the church's year. Each week the Chaplaincy Reps also lead a classroom-based assembly (Tutor Group Worship) which explores the weekly theme further and allows for greater participation and discussion than a large assembly.
Throughout the year the Chaplaincy provides Anglican Eucharists and Roman Catholic Masses, to which we are very pleased to welcome our local Roman Catholic priest from the parish of St Philip Howard, Fr Philip John. All students will attend each at least once a year in the Pilgrim Theatre with their year group, but there are further opportunities to attend voluntary worship in the more intimate setting of the Chaplaincy for those who wish.
The end of each term is marked by a Christmas, Lent or End of Year liturgy, attended by all students, led in large part by Chaplaincy Reps and musicians. These liturgies may involve art, drama, music, reflection, testimony, prayer and scripture.
Other occasions such as Remembrance, Christmas Carol Service, St Bede's Day (25th May) and visits from our two Diocesan Bishops (of East Anglia (RC) and Ely (C of E)) give occasion for further liturgies.
