Chaplaincy at MLC School MLC School is a school of the Uniting Church, and as such we celebrate our Methodist heritage alongside the breadth of tradition and culture of the Uniting Church in Australia. All students at MLC School regularly attend Chapel Services and are invited to participate in leadership of liturgy. Junior School Our Junior School students regularly visit the School Chapel for times of prayer, stillness, singing and learning from the Christian Scriptures. Year 3 to Year 5 attend weekly, while Pre-Kindergarten to Year 2 attend fortnightly. Once per year, families from Kindergarten to Year 5 meet in the Chapel in their House groups for a Family Service led by the Chaplains. Pre-Kindergarten families gather for a Rainbow Chapel Service on a Sunday in Term 4. Each Chapel Service is led by students in collaboration with the Chaplains. Senior School Students from Year 6 to Year 12 attend a Chapel Service weekly either in the School Chapel or a larger venue such as Daphne Line Hall or Potts Hall. Worship music is mostly drawn from the Together in Song hymn book and reflects the great diversity of traditional and modern music of the Uniting Church. We regularly incorporate contemporary and creative elements of worship into these services alongside the traditions and liturgies of the church. In addition to the weekly service with liturgy and reflection, there are opportunities for students to participate in acts of service and experiences of stillness and mindfulness during scheduled times throughout the week. House Chapel Services Every year students and their families meet in the Chapel on a Sunday for a House Chapel Service. These services are shaped by students to explore important themes and they follow the Uniting Church liturgical structure. These services are compulsory for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. Holy Communion Students from Year 3 to Year 12 participate in services of Holy Communion at the end of each term. While all students attend these services, in the spirit of the Uniting Church’s open table inclusive style students are invited to consult with their parents about whether they will receive this sacrament or instead use the time communion is distributed as an opportunity for contemplation. Holy Communion is also celebrated before school in the Chapel on a weekly basis for interested staff, students and families.
