Gatherings provides information and ideas relevant to assemblies and collective worship as well as gathering together material relating to a range of educational issues including creativity, values, spiritual development and emotional literacy.

At its core is a week-by-week breakdown of the school term listing:

  • notable dates, anniversaries and festivals (secular and religious);
  • suggestions for assembly/collective worship themes; and
  • a 'saying of the week' (probably linked to one of the themes).
The second part of the publication consists of a variety of material such as:
  • accounts of good practice;
  • reviews of recent publications (e.g. the Autumn Term 2002 edition contains a review of Tony Buzan's book The Power of Spiritual Intelligence);
  • stories (sometimes linked to festivals which occur during the term);
  • articles (e.g. the Autumn 2004 edition carried an account of a recent visit to Japan); and
  • large-print sayings which can be photocopied for display.

Many of the articles and reviews published in Gatherings are later placed in our  Articles and  Reviews sections of the website.
