Christian Life and Worship
Our Christian spirituality is the underlying thread of inspiration that holds together our philosophy and approach. We are allied to the Uniting Church and warmly welcome girls from all backgrounds and faiths who are happy to participate in our worship and religious education program.
The College Chaplains, Mrs Narelle McNamara in Primary, and Reverend Peter Hobson in Secondary, have key roles in facilitating the development of a Christian community. This means creating a school environment in which Christian teachings and values are prioritised and promoted; where the girls have the opportunity to develop a real relationship with Christ; where Christian care and compassion for students, staff and parents is displayed; and where Christian concern and love for the less fortunate is developed.
Worship is an essential and compulsory part of life at Moreton Bay College with weekly worship in both the Primary School and Secondary School. Prep students attend four Chapel services, one each term. All major Christian festivals are celebrated within worship services in the College community, namely Christmas, Easter and Pentecost. While the responsibility for worship sits with the College Chaplains, students are encouraged to participate and lead through prayers, Bible reading, music, drama and dance.
Students are also encouraged to develop their Christian spirituality through our inter-school Christian fellowship groups and explore faith and belief in Religious Education classes. Through these classes, we encourage intelligent exploration of personal and ethical issues as well as developing the strengths of Christian spirituality.
