Chapel

The Chapel is central to life at Glenalmond.  Six days a week, the whole school comes together for the Chapel service – strengthening the sense of community and allowing time and space for the nurturing of faith.

The school has an Episcopalian foundation, and welcomes children of all faiths. The Glenalmond community comes together for worship in Chapel at least once every day (apart from Saturday) in term-time. There are also services during the holidays, as announced. This emphasis on Christian living and belief underpins a great deal of what happens in College. We also respect the beliefs and approaches of those who have another faith or none, and whilst all pupils are invited to share in Christian faith, there is no compulsion to do so. Integrity, tolerance, equality and forgiveness are our core values.

The Sacraments

The Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday in term-time. Christians of any denomination who would normally receive Communion in their own church are invited to receive Holy Communion in Chapel. Members of the College are prepared for Confirmation (in the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Church of Scotland and associated Churches; Roman Catholic pupils may also be prepared by arrangement), usually in Fifth Form. Baptism, the Sacrament of Reconciliation (commonly called Confession) and the Anointing of the Sick are available following consultation with the Chaplain. Outwith term-time, Chapel can be available for Weddings - please contact the Bursar's Office for more information.
