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 Years 3-6 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. The children are supported in their work by Miss Kearns, the Lead Lay Chaplain for our school. If anyone has any ideas that they wish to share with the Chaplaincy Team, please speak to Miss Kearns, or one of the chaplains, as we are here to listen and to help!



The role of a chaplain at Bishop Ellis includes the following:


  • to help the school to develop as a community of faith
  • to encourage the children to live out their faith in daily life
  • to develop good relationships within and beyond the school community
  • to support liturgy, prayer and the spiritual life of the school
  • to involve other children in fundraising for charities
  • to support the school in living out its Values and Mission Statement


In order to fulfil these roles, our chaplaincy team:


  • helps to prepare and lead masses, liturgies and assemblies on a regular basis.

  • assists in organising charity fund-raising events, when necessary
  • suggests ideas for new R.E. and Collective Worship resources
  • provide support to others in planning and leading Collective Worship
  • promotes gospel values and helps others to understand how we can best use them in our everyday lives
