Our Chaplain

Tom rutterAt Christ's School we have a School Chaplain - Tom Rutter, who works in the school three days a week. Tom's primary task in the school is to provide pastoral care for the students and staff, to develop the spiritual life of the school in ways that meet the needs of the school community and to help build relations with the wider community. 

Tom has been involved in youth ministry for over 20 years and really understands the changes and challenges that young people face, as they become adults in the world.

Tom is the school's first Lay Chaplain. Before his appointment he was the founding coach of a local charity, Kick London in 2003, which now works in 20 London boroughs. It was here that Tom began his ministry journey through the world of sport. He has taught, coached and ministered throughout London, the UK and the world. He is passionate about training and equipping others and has worked as far afield as Brazil and South Africa in the run up to the FIFA World Cup. This new role as Chaplain is an exciting and challenging one for Tom as he explores God's calling on his life. 

Tom's role at Christ's enables him to be there for students, staff and parents and he regularly leads weekly lunchtime clubs. Tom would like to grow a culture of prayer within the school and with this in mind would like to remind parents that there is a termly prayer meeting at school, which all parents are welcome to attend.

In order to tackle the challenges that a new day can bring, Tom suggests this verse from 1 Timothy 4:8

"For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come."

If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact Tom via email at: trutter@christs.school
