The School Chapel

The school chapel was officially opened on 26th March 2000 to serve all of Moi Girls’ community. It can seat a thousand two hundred people. It has a Prayer Room, a Library and a Chaplain’s Office.

The chapel activities are coordinated by a committee that consists of members of the School administration, the Chaplain and members of the teaching staff drawn from different Christian denominations. Their role is to coordinate and organize all the programmes and activities in the school chapel.

Several worship sessions are held during the week:

  • School Service on Sundays
  • School Assembly on Wednesdays
  • School Hymn Practice on Thursdays.
Other Christian societies also use the chapel namely:
  • The Catholic Society
  • The Christian Union
  • The Seventh Day Adventists
The chapel is open every day of the week from 7 am to 10 pm for anyone who needs to use it. The school’s spiritual services provide for special needs especially for students in terms of:
  • Spiritual growth
  • Positive character building
  • Learning a wide range of Hymns
  • Reading of Christian literature.
Every year the chaplaincy prepares a theme based on the prevailing needs. For 2014, the theme is taken fromJames 1: 22, “BE DOERS OF GOD’S WORD", in the spiritual, moral, emotional and academic life of the students. We are working towards bringing out as much as possible the theme ‘Being doers of God’s Word but not just hearers, deceiving ourselves’. The teachers on the Chaplaincy are mature Christians who can handle spiritual matters effectively.

The chaplain is also responsible for facilitating the worship services of the Muslims in the school community. Their meetings are held in a room provided for them specifically for that purpose.
