Song for the environment recorded by Rochdale schools

First published on: 12th March 2024

Earlier this month St Peter's CE Primary School welcomed Kelly and her team from Praise Along, who produced a collective worship song themed around our environment. Taking place as part of the Spring term WOW Church Synod Group meeting, ten children from St Peter’s were joined by children from St John’s Thornham CE Primary and Milnrow Parish CE Primary to sing a beautiful song called ‘Rich Diversity’. This was a wonderful opportunity for all the children to use their voices to raise awareness about the environment, and they had a fantastic time singing, performing and recording the song together. It was amazing to hear the collective voices of the WOW group sing out about such an important topic, and with such great enthusiasm! 

The Wow Church members also said this prayer at the beginning of their meeting to show their gratitude for our wonderful world:

Dear God,

We praise you for the beauty of creation, its richness and variety.

The earth is yours, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

Grant us your grace that we may exercise wise stewardship of this Earth; tread lightly upon it and cherish its resources so that in years to come everyone may enjoy its riches.

Please be with us today as we create this song to help spread the word of how wonderful and diverse your creation is.

Help us to restore and care for this beautiful earth you blessed us with.


You’ll be able to hear the recording of the song when it is released by Praise Along in June.
