The same is true in many Church of England services when they follow the Anglo-Catholic tradition.

The word “Catholic” comes from the Greek word meaning “universal”.

Our Autumn Assembly Topics are based on the readings for the upcoming Sunday Gospel and it’s quite amazing to think that children and adults all over the world are being inspired and encouraged in their faith by the same readings each week as the ones we will be sharing in our schools.

Our Autumn Assembly Topics Overview document is now available. Whether you subscribe to our Collective Worship programme or not, you may find these overview documents for your liturgy planning this term.
