Liverpool College is a multifaith community. The College Chapel is situated at the heart of the school both physically and metaphorically and is used as a place for reflection and development of character for all pupils.
Pupils in Years 1-13 attend Reflection Assembly weekly to explore universal faith themes, sing and reflect on their place in the world. Reflection Assembly also links our school with local faith communities and visiting speakers. Pupils lead some services as well as serve as Reflection Wardens and Readers. Reflection Assembly provides an experience of shared values and a basis for the building of an ordered, tolerant and reflective community. Weekly reflection time with pupils, Deans, Form Tutors and the Chaplaincy team inspires personal growth and cements the values that bind us as a community.
Parents are welcome to services periodically through the school year for Harvest Festival, Christingle and leavers’ services. Our links with Liverpool Cathedral and services for Founders Day, Advent and Lent enrich our Communal Worship which takes place a few times in the year in the tradition of our Anglican foundation.
The chaplaincy is an essential part of the daily life of the school and the Chaplaincy Lead has a central role in delivering and developing its spiritual provision and its mission of service to the community. The chaplaincy is fully inclusive of people from all faiths and none, encouraging an open, honest and friendly dialogue, where all views are respected in a spirit of generous hospitality and mutual learning.
The Chaplaincy team strives to bring awareness of the many faith traditions at Liverpool College through celebrating the diversity of our pupils and staff. The Chaplaincy Room, based in the Upper School, is a welcoming space for the school community to drop in and is also used daily for private Muslim prayer. Chaplaincy is committed to giving pupils the opportunity to explore faith in word and action.
Pupil groups are listed below, and new members are welcome!
The pupil-led Charity Action Group meets weekly to raise awareness of issues such as mental health and arrange school-wide collections for good causes such as Liverpool homeless charities and food banks. Their motto is ‘action and awareness’.
The Muslim Student Experience meets regularly to discuss and support Muslim prayer in the school during lunchtime and breaks, and plan activities such as bake sales.
Rooted is an after-school club that discusses Christian faith and the Bible.
The Mini Vinnies (St Vincent de Paul Society SVP) meet weekly to explore the needs of the community and how we can turn ‘concern into action’ through food bank collections and visits to nursing homes among other outreach activities.
This year in the Prep School, Chaplaincy is starting a Quilting Group to teach basic sewing and patchwork piecing.
The PTA is planning an Eid party this year for pupils and families.
