Child Led Prayers

Each one of our children at St Bartholomew's learns that they are loved by God and that they are special and have dignity in His sight. They are taught the power of prayer and building a friendship with Jesus who always listens to them. Our children are given opportunities to lead their own prayers whether this is through spontaneous petition in class or during assemblies, or through composing and writing prayers they read for all to join them. 

Children are taught about prayers of praise, petition, intercession and thanksgiving and are taught that there are many ways we can speak to and listen to God.
