Faith in action: Chaplaincy, Missions & Chapel
As a part of the College’s Christian ethos and as a direct financial input received by the Australian Federal Government’s National School Chaplaincy Program Funding, the College has made available a Chaplain, who’s role along with the general staff, is to provide pastoral care, spiritual guidance and support for the general well-being of the students and families associated with the College.
The College Chaplain currently is available two days a week to provide assistance. Please feel free to drop in and have a friendly chat.
As College Chaplain, Olivia Neaves is well-equipped and experienced to provide spiritual support and oversight for our College. She can be contacted at the College on 02 4634 7474.
We are dedicated to developing the whole student, and as part of our vision for achieving this outcome the College gives students opportunities to participate in overseas and local missions and service activities. MACC has taken student mission teams to South Africa, Mozambique and Townsville but more recently to Central Australia, Bali (Indonesia) and there have been over 10 trips to China.
We had a very successful trip to Bali in 2019 involving students from Years 9-12. In fact the whole school from K-12 got involved in supporting projects in Bali. The College also got behind a project to support a breakfast program for children affected by the recent bushfires on the South Coast. A group of student leaders and staff travelled to Bega to give, encourage and support the community recovering from this natural disaster. Future trips and other projects are in the pipeline.
Projects supported by the College recently include:
- Wrap up Homelessness helping get the homeless off the streets in Wollongong
- Build a water tank project in Munduk, Bali
- Refurbishing the kitchen for the Compassion project in Denpasar
- Provision of health care packages to children in Bali
- Build them a classroom project at Hope School, Munduk
- Feed the children at Hope School and C3 Compassion project Denpasar
- Christmas gifts for the local community
- Feed the children breakfast program in Bega
We are committed to giving students of all ages that they can help and serve others.
Chapel is a regular part of College life at Mount Annan Christian College with a time of worship, prayer and teaching. Chapel services are held in the C3 Church Mount Annan Auditorium which has a seating capacity of over 700 people and is located on the same site as the College.
Parents are most welcome to attend College Chapel. Scheduled times of whole College Chapel will be advertised in the College newsletter MACCchat. Students have the opportunity and responsibility to lead and participate at many different levels in this vibrant and energetic area of College life.
