36 Ready-to-Read Assemblies for Collective Worship provides material to explore the Christian faith with children at Key Stages 1 and 2. Bible passages form the basis of the assemblies, which are presented in both traditional and contemporary versions, giving a choice in how you might tell the story, to suit your school's preference. This assembly resource introduces commonly read Christian Bible texts that can challenge or inform our responses, which are frequently found in wider British culture.

The Department for Education requires that schools actively promote fundamental British values. These assemblies resource the Education Act (2002), which requires schools, as part of a broad and balanced curriculum, to promote the spiritual, moral and cultural development of pupils at the school and of society.

With twelve assemblies for each of the three school terms, children will grow in familiarity with prevalent themes in the Old Testament and the Gospels, as well as significant events in the Epistles. The assemblies unfold in a cohesive order giving a sequential overview.

Helen Lings is a theologian by education and a teacher by profession, most recently as head of Religious Studies and lay chaplain at an independent preparatory school. She has also written teaching resources for Scripture Union.

Helen knows what she is talking about. A hugely experienced teacher and theologian, she has created an accessible, easy-to-use resource for hard-pressed assembly leaders. Over the year your children will hear the Christian story unfolded, and they will grow spiritually and culturally. I am delighted to commend this work and I hope it will be widely used.
- Paul Bayes, Bishop of Liverpool.
