OUR CHAPEL OVERVIEW
Queen Anne’s is part of a Church of England Foundation. The chapel is integral to the building and integral to the life of the school and we regularly meet there together as a school community. Liturgical services are held to celebrate the festivals of the church’s year and eucharists mark Harvest, Ash Wednesday and Ascension Day. Girls are prepared for Confirmation each year and a Confirmation Service is held in chapel at Candlemas. The Chaplin at Queen Anne’s School is Rachel Ross Smith.
The girls’ faith continues to be nurtured and many value the informal communion services on the first Thursday of every month. The life of chapel is enhanced by visiting speakers, links with the local community and charity work. There is an awareness of the whole community; those with Christian faith, other faiths or none. What is said and done in chapel goes out into the corridors and classes and is picked up in discussion and the corporate life of the school. It is here that we learn to listen, reflect and prepare to play out our part in the world.
