We are grateful to the Diocese of Guildford for sharing the following collective worship resources. These do include photographs of The Queen visiting Guildford Cathedral over the years therefore Schools in the Diocese of Chichester may wish to delete these or replace these with photographs of more local royal visits if they have them:
Primary Schools In this worship we remember events in the life of the Queen as we consider what she may have kept in her handbag! If you have time you may wish to gather a handbag and various props, or the primary script contains images that you can print.
Secondary Schools In this worship we remember The Queen as a mother, grandmother and great grandmother and consider some of the events in her life.
There is a single set of slides to use with both the primary and secondary version. The script for the collective worship is on the notes page under each slide.
Slides and scripts can be found below
