Christian life and Worship

The school has adopted four Values that are connected to the Christian tradition. These values are Engagement, Character, Care and Teamwork.

Christian spirituality is the underlying inspiration that epitomises our philosophy and approach at Moreton Bay Boys’ College.

 

We are under the guidance of the Uniting Church in Australia and warmly welcome boys from all backgrounds and faiths who are open to participation in our Worship services and Religious Education programme.

 

There is a Christian ethos within our teaching and learning, and there are two particular areas that are important to us as a Christian school: Collective Worship and Religious Education lessons.

Worship

Worship

Worship

Worship is both a personal and community invitation to engage with the Gospel of Christ and is an integral and compulsory part of life at Moreton Bay Boys’ College, with weekly services conducted in both the Primary and Secondary Schools. Major Christian festivals are celebrated within the College community; namely Christmas and Easter. While the College Chaplain prepares and offers these services, students are encouraged to participate and lead through prayers, Bible readings and music.

Religious Education

Religious Education

Religious Education lessons occur once per week in Prep through to Year 12. The approach to teaching Religion has been shaped by Uniting Church policy and focusses on students learning about religions and learning from religions. This means that Religious Education is not about promoting one particular faith but is about helping students explore questions of spiritually and life in the world. Religious Education at Moreton Bay Boys’ College encourages students to explore important questions and inform their own views, backed up by a reasonable understanding of the world’s religions and religious practices.
