Remote School Collective Worship Videos (Methodist)
Over the past couple of weeks we have putting some work into school collective worship for these strange days in which we live.
What we are hoping will happen is that each week for the next few weeks a different Chaplain from one of the Methodist Schools will put up on YouTube a 3-5 minute Junior and a Senior Collective Worship presentation - these can be used around the group as you wish.
It is our offering to you - if you feel it will be of use to you that's great. If you are delivering collective worship in a different way that is also fine.
What we do want to emphasise is that as well as providing lessons online - if the ethos of our schools is to be maintained we need to offer worship as well.
I have become a Youtuber (I never thought I'd say that!) and the first two pieces are up. These will be followed by a different presenter each week.
They can be found at:

Senior School: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_tUV-DqFYM&t=5s
Our hope and prayer is that you find this helpful.

How one man started the world's biggest beach cleanup
We stumbled upon this amazing story of how one man inspired thousands of people to clean up their beach. It's just 4 minutes long, so ideal as a discussion starter for a lesson or CU.

The life and work of
chaplaincy in colleges
Did you know that 2.2 million people in England are studying and training at a Further Education or Sixth Form College and that FE and Sixth Form colleges educate a higher proportion of 16-19s than school sixth forms? Did you know that there are 257 FE and Sixth Form Colleges in England, often major organisations in their local communities and employing hundreds of thousands of staff nationally?
Further Education chaplains are at the forefront of the churches’ efforts to love and serve this important sector of society. Chaplains come in all shapes and sizes – lay and ordained, paid and voluntary, from a couple of hours a fortnight to full-time. But what does Further Education chaplaincy actually look like, and how do chaplains make a positive contribution to their local colleges?
West Midlands Churches’ FE Council present five two-minute videos, filmed in three colleges, introducing the FE sector, the life and work of chaplaincy teams, and how you can get involved. You can watch them on their YouTube channel here:

Working with two line managers
Working with two line managers
Many chaplains work in a school or college but are employed by a church or local charity which gives them two line managers. Josh Hunt chaplain at Felixstowe Academy, believes this can work well, and even bring some advantages. Read his short article here:
