HEARTSMART – Fake is a Mistake!

Assembly 1 – up to Slide 6 – Telling lies…


Monday 10th September

HEARTSMART – Fake is a Mistake!

Assembly 1 – from Slide 7

Jesus can help us with this. He describes Himself as “the Truth” in John 14:6 and He gives us courage to tell the truth always. Knowing that He loves us no matter what, can help too.


Daniel and the Lion’s Den – Daniel 6

HEARTSMART – Fake is a Mistake!

Assembly 2

‘Fake is a Mistake’ because the real you, isn’t a mistake. Don’t hide yourself. It helps when we let love in. 1 John 3:1 says, ‘See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are.’ The more we think about that, the more we fill our hearts with strength and courage. And the more courageous our hearts, the more likely we are to tell the truth.”

  • Paul’s Trip to Rome - Acts 27

Monday, 1st October - Harvest


Genesis 1 v 27-30 Use a large unlabelled present wrapped with some items of food inside.

The world and its harvest are like a present from God – What would you say in a thank you letter for the world? (Margaret Cooling Autumn Assemblies C5)



Genesis 1 v 27-30 In the account of creation God created a world in which plants, animals and people rely on each other. Explore how that works in practice. Discuss how a loaf of bread or a bottle of milk gets to our tables and the interdependency needed for each part of the process.



  1. 15 v 8 Jesus encourages his followers to ‘bear much fruit’. The Bible talks about the harvest of life which include love, friendship, and peace. Try to show how we can grow these attributes in our own lives – that we will need to watch over them and make sure they have ‘light’ and ‘food’ and ‘water’ if they are to grow.

Half Term Holiday


At St Cuthbert's we recognise the power of prayer and the comfort it brings. It is a time of quiet contemplation, a time to ask for forgiveness, a time of peace and a time to reflect and be thankful. We respect the diversity in our school community. Each week our children and staff are invited to write prayers inspired by the worship value/message or simply to sit and think about the theme. These prayers are displayed on our prayer tree which stands in our entrance area so that members of our school community and visitors can read them. Some of these prayers are read as part of worship.

Please let us know if you would like us to pray for someone or something in particular by submitting an e-mail using the contact form below.
