Our Chaplain

At Christ's School we have a School Chaplain, Serena Willoughby, who works in the school four days a week. Serena is an Anglican priest whose 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. 

Serena became a Christian as an older teenager so she really understands the challenges young people face as they become adults in the world.

Serena has been ordained for 17 years and has served in three parishes, the last being in Sevenoaks Weald where she was vicar for 9 years. Serena has also taught in two schools and has always been interested in education and has found the ideal role at Christ's where she can use her calling as Priest as well as teaching.

Serena's role at Christ's enables her to be there for students, staff and parents – Serena leads monthly prayer meetings for parents that all are welcome to attend.

In order to tackle the challenges that each new day brings, Serena suggests this verse from Proverbs:

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."?Proverbs 3:5-6
