Bishop Ellis Chaplaincy Team
‘Be an example for the believers in your love, speech, faith, conduct and purity.' (Timothy 4:12)
At Bishop Ellis, the children in Year 6 have the opportunity to serve the school as part of the Chaplaincy Team. The Chaplaincy Team plays a vital role in developing the spiritual life of the school and the children are supported in their work by the Assistant Headteacher and R.E. Co-ordinator, Mrs Gunton.
The initial meeting for those children interested in joining the Chaplaincy Team for this year (2017/2018) has already taken place and the children who would like to be considered for a role on the Chaplaincy Team have written letters to Mrs Gunton, explaining how they think their talents and individual qualities will make them a good chaplain who can contribute to the development of collective worship, prayer and social justice in our school community. Hopefully, the Bishop Ellis Chaplaincy Team for this academic year will be in place within the next couple of weeks and once roles have been decided upon, we will have a special commissioning assembly in school at which the new chaplains will receive their chaplaincy badge.
If anyone has any ideas that they wish to share with the Chaplaincy Team, please speak to Mrs Gunton, or one of the new chaplains when they have been commissioned, as we are here to listen and to help!
The Chaplaincy Board will soon be relocated to the school hall and there you will find information about chaplaincy activities, so make sure you read the notices when they are put up!
