Schools are such significant places in the lives of children and young people, and Assemblies are just one of many ways Scripture Union can help you connect with your local schools.
"And how can they hear if nobody tells them?"
The contribution that local churches can make to school assemblies and acts of collective worship is highly valued by many schools. Members of a local church can often bring a great depth of wisdom, creativity and experience that adds to the pupils' experience of the Christian faith!
But we know that delivering an assembly or act of collective worship can seem very daunting and challenging. That's why we're here to equip and support you with ideas, guidance, training and advice!

We love creating content that you can simply 'pick up and use'.

Bible-based Assemblies is a collection of some of our favourite assemblies that we hope will help you to plan effective Christian school assemblies quickly and easily.
Over the years SU Staff members and volunteers across England and Wales have created these outlines that include stories, visual aids, questions for pupils and much more!
