The Southwell community seeks to worship God as often as possible. Each day the school opens with a service, Monday to Thursdays at 8.30am in our All Hallows Chapel. On Fridays, the prayers and readings form part of our weekly assembly held in the Centre of Performing Arts.
In Terms 1 and 2, Family Services for each year group are held on Sundays at either 10am or 6.30pm. These services have a strong level of student involvement and everyone is encouraged to attend. In Terms 3 and 4, students and families meet in their House groups.
Special events in the church calendar are celebrated in the Chapel: Ash Wednesday to mark the beginning of Lent, Christmas Carol Services held prior to the end of our school year, and a special Christmas Day Service for all members of the public to come together. The Chapel is also a special place for events in the School year such as the Commissioning of Prefects Service, Grandparents' Day Services and Founders' Day Service. New children to Southwell begin their journey in All Hallows Chapel and leave from there in a moving service for Year 8 Leavers on their last day of school. Other worship opportunities occur for the Old Boys' ad Girls' Association Friends of Southwell School, to name a few.
