Our academy chaplain is responsible for co-ordinating our ecumenical chaplaincy team and has a key role in the development and delivery of Christian worship throughout the academic year. They are also available to talk with any member of the academy community (students, staff or governors) whether or not they are a Christian.
As part of the academy calendar we have an annual Mission week and Prayer week. The aims of these events are:
- Mission week – provides our students with an opportunity explore the Christian faith and their own beliefs further. Alongside this we look at how they can proactively work for the benefit of others in their community.
- Prayer week – provides our students with a chance to take time and reflect on their own beliefs; what is important to them and what they hope for in the future.
Chaplaincy at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre
Students in our sixth form are also given the opportunity to develop in their potential as leaders through the ‘Developing Christian Young Leaders’ groups that runs at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre on Mondays. Excitingly this year we have been involved in another leadership course in collaboration with the Bishop of Nottingham and Southwell called ‘Leadership in Lent’ which a number of students graduated from in May 2018.
In both these groups students are encouraged to grow in their gifts and talents and use them to make a positive difference to the lives of those around them.
