Good and Faithful Servant – A collective worship to mark the sad death of Her  Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

This has been written by the Diocese of Guildford and includes photographs of The Queen visiting Guildford Cathedral over the years.  Schools may wish to include photographs of more local royal visits if they have them. 
Primary Schools In this worship we remember events in the life of the Queen as we consider what she may have kept in her handbag!  If you have time you may wish to gather a handbag and various props, or the primary script contains images that you can print.  
Secondary Schools In this worship we remember The Queen as a mother, grandmother and great grandmother and consider some of the events in her life.

There is a single set of slides to use with both the primary and secondary version.  The script for the collective worship is on the notes page under each slide.
