We are the Diocese of Leeds: Writing prayers together at Trinity Academy, Halifax

This week our latest film in our year long campaign to tell our story here in the Diocese of Leeds gives us a glimpse into a day in the life of a school chaplain at one of our 245 church schools and academies. Marcus Bull is chaplain at Trinity Academy, Halifax, a co-ed school for pupils aged 11-19. For Marcus, his presence in the school -  which achieved Outstanding in all areas from OFSTED in 2013 – means that faith is a visible daily presence and offers a real possibility for all its students - many of whom have little or no connection to a religion or a regular faith. The school has its own prayer, the Academy Prayer, which is prayed daily. It was written by former students with the help of Marcus some years ago and he wants the current students to rewrite it for their own time, to help them have a sense of ownership of it.
