The Chaplaincy in Bishop Justus seeks to make Christ present in our school through worship, pastoral care and our wider connections with church and community. Playing a key role in the life of the school, the Chaplaincy is led by Mr Kings, our Lay Chaplain. He supports the spiritual welfare of students and staff and prepare daily worship for the whole school community.
The chapel is on the first floor and is available for quiet contemplation and prayer for all students and staff.
School worship provides the focus for the school community’s Christian beliefs and virtues. At Bishop Justus we have worship for 20 minutes every morning. Worship is inclusive, structured and vibrant. It enhances the spiritual, moral, emotional, intellectual and social life of the school and our students are actively encouraged to lead and plan worship.
Working within the wider team of pastoral care established at Bishop Justus, students can meet with our Lay Chaplain to discuss such issues as bereavement, spiritual concerns and faith questions, as well as other concerns or worries. The Chaplain also supports the pastoral needs of staff within the school.
At Bishop Justus we have a Faith in Action program, which focuses on different charities in the year. Through our chaplaincy we raise funds and awareness for organisations in our local community and abroad.
As a Christian community we are connected with our local churches. Clergy and youth workers from our local churches are invited to school to lead worship and chaplaincy activities.
