Chaplaincy

The school has a part time Chaplain, Fr Stephen Mills. Fr Stephen is also the incumbent at St. Wilfrid’s Church (http://www.stwilfrids.org), which is our local parish church.

Father Stephen served at Assistant Curate in Steyning and Ashurst from Easter 2018 until January 2021 and was licensed on 25 February 2021 as Priest-in-Charge of St Wilfrid’s in Chichester and Chaplain to Bishop Luffa School. He was ordained Deacon at Chichester Cathedral in 2017 and priested in 2018. Before that he lived and studied in several UK cities, including; Sheffield, Leicester Brighton and Oxford. Teaching religious education and drama was a passion for Fr Stephen, and he was inspired by watching young people learn. He trained for ordination at St Stephen’s House Oxford where he obtained a degree of Master of Theology. He and his partner David have two dogs, Mabel and Edna.
