'A Community of faith where we believe, achieve and grow together'
This week the core Christian value we are focusing on in our collective worship isAgape – Christian love Agape is the key Christian value as it lies at the root of all other values. It means respect, affection, benevolence, goodwill and concern for the welfare of the one loved. It is selfless and means putting others first before oneself. • Corinthians 13:4-5: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs." • The bible explicitly tells us that God is love and that those who live in love, live in God and God lives in them (1 John 4:16) • Matthew 22:38 ‘love your neighbour as yourself.’
