Termly iChapel takes on World Water Day theme

Rydal Penrhos continued its embrace of the digital age with another special event throughout the Senior School site.

The Reverend Nick Sissons once again hosted a termly iChapel on Friday, March 22, which was based on a theme coinciding with World Water Day.

He was joined by a special guest in the form of Korey Finch, a local worker for Youth for Christ in Colwyn Bay.

Rev’d Sissons, said: “iChapel replaces the normal Friday service in St John’s and gives an opportunity for the whole staff and the wider school community to participate in our daily reflection.

“This time the theme coincided with World Water Day and got out and about to one or two interesting locations and there’s involvement from both Prep and Senior schools.”

Director of Music Pete Williams devised a special music piece for the iChapel broadcast, which was accompanied by dance routines from Lower and Prep School pupils.

Mr Finch then gave his contribution to the iChapel from The Holy Well and Chapel of Saint Trillo in Rhos on Sea, a 6th Century building situated on the shoreline.

The chapel by the sea is on the site of a pre-Christian, sacred holy well, and the altar is built directly over the pure water of the well.

The iChapel was filmed and produced by Network and Services manager Gareth Robinson and proved to be another huge hit with staff and pupils.
