From the Chaplain

Welcome to The Chaplains Corner!

 Rev Dominic Hubbuck

Newly arrived, my role at the Federation involves supporting the spiritual input, faith development and the pastoral care of everyone in the school community.

My background before being ordained was working with children, young people and families. It has often included play, creating safe spaces for families and supporting people to explore faith as they do life.’

  • The Lenten Lessons we Learn...

    Published 03/04/20

    Loo roll is highly desirable when there is none to buy.

    Even the tins in the cupboard that were overlooked for years become possibilities for dinner.

    Actually you really liked company even when you said you didn’t.

    Who knew clapping could make you cry.

    Published 02/04/20

    Food is one of my favourite things.

    Don’t worry – I’m not about to break into a song about a few of my favourite things…although Musicals do rank highly in my book!

    Food is amazing for so many things.

  • A blank canvas...

    Published 31/03/20

    Researchers reckon that for something to become a habit, you need to do it about 60 times before it becomes something automatic. Some of us pick it up within 18 and others can take upto 256 times. I don’t think we are there yet.

  • Nothing can Separate us…

    Published 26/03/20

    If you would like something to read today then you could do worse than look at Romans Chapter 8.

    (Because this is a letter from Paul to the Church in Rome, it can come across as a bit of a complicated lecture with each sentence making you ask more questions than it answers. You find yourself saying ‘Wait, what?’ but it is worth reading Chapter 8 because it contains some of the most encouraging things we find in the New Testament.)

    The night has passed and the day lies open before us; let us pray with one heart and mind.

    As we rejoice in the gift of this new day, so may the light of your presence, O God, set our hearts on fire with love for you; now and for ever. Amen.

  • Peace be with you…

    Published 19/03/20

    Change can be disruptive and unsettling. As the situation changes, so we need to catch up and find a new normal to help us settle and be at peace. Jesus’ presence brought peace to his Disciples, the Holy Spirit brought peace to the early churches.

  • Unconditional Positive Grace

    Published 18/03/20

    At school and in Church we often say ‘The Grace’ together. These are the closing words in Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians and comes after a long letter that tries to bring harmony to a group that is struggling. It feels like we are entering a time when we as a community, as a country, as many around the world may struggle as the weeks go on.

  • Many shall not live by bread alone…

    Published 03/03/20

    …but by every word that comes from the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4).

    We are now in the season of Lent and as the cloths are changed to purple, so we are encouraged to become thoughtful, prayerful and focussed on God. The Bible Quote is from Jesus being tempted by the devil in the wilderness during his 40 days of fasting and praying – preparing himself perhaps for the 3 full years of ministry, his death and resurrection.
