The vision of the Lincoln Diocese:

'Church schools serving their communities through excellence, exploration and encouragement within the love of God. The diocese of Lincoln is called to faithful worship, confident discipleship and joyful service and our church schools bear witness to our belief that every child is made in the image of God and loved by Him. They were founded for the good of their local communities so that children can be educated through the values and stories of Christianity.'

Collective Worship
 
All church schools worship should reflect the rich traditions of prayer and worship that characterise the worldwide community of Christians. School policy and practice also need to conform to legal requirements concerning worship, in that it must take place every day and should follow the requirements of the Trust Deed. In community schools the requirements for the content of collective worship, while less specific, also necessitate that worship should reflect the broad traditions of Christian belief and be , wholly or mainly of a broad Christian character.'
The Lincoln Diocese regards collective worship as a centrally important element of school life. It should be an enjoyable and uplifting time for ADULTS and YOUNG PEOPLE alike.
