Chaplaincy Team

Our Chaplaincy Team work hard to help develop the prayer life of our school.  We aim to share the love of Jesus with everyone we meet and we encourage others to do the same.  At Christ the King, we are always thinking of ways in which we can 'Make a Difference' to the live of other.

A new Chaplaincy Team is formed every September and we meet regularly to share ideas on how we can improve the Catholic life of our school.  So far, this academic year, we have:


Whole School Assembly: as a team we planned and delivered a whole school assembly to introduce ourselves and tell everyone what we do and what our plans for the year are.

Been to a Special Commissioning Service: We went to a special commissioning service with the Bishop at Clifton Cathedral.  Cameron and Dominic wrote the following report about the day:

In the morning (at 10 o'clock) the coach arrived at school to take the Chaplaincy Team to Clifton Cathedral.  When we got off the coach, the teachers led us up the stairs into the Cathedral and we were welcomed by a man.  We put the school banner with the other school banners - there were about 50 altogether! When we were told to do so, Cameron and Dominic had to get the banner and we walked through the Cathedral and back to where we started.  We all sang hymns, some children came up and asked some tricky questions to the Priest.  We all stood up and asked other children why they wanted to be on a Chaplaincy Team.  At the end we were given our badges.  Then Cameron asked Bishop Declan for have a picture with the Chaplaincy Team.  We then got back on the coach to go back to school.

Christ the King Feast Day: We planned and organised our Christ the King Feast Day.  We chose art activities that were linked to Christ the King and allocated them to different classes.  The whole school had lots of fun and we had a very enjoyable day.

Lenten Trail: At the moment we are very busy planning our Lenten Trail for the whole school.  We have planned and organised 5 different activities ranging from making things from salt dough to prayer and quiet reflection.


We are very much looking forward to 'Making a Difference' to many more people this year.
