Worship & Christian Studies

Chapel lead by our Preps

Trinity Lutheran College is a co-educational college owned and operated by the Lutheran Church of Australia, Queensland District. As a school of the church, it holds that its fundamental role is to offer students a sound and integrated education within the Christian tradition and to nurture a personal Christian faith.

Trinity offers a holistic educational experience founded in the Gospel, because it is our firm conviction that fullness of life is savoured within a Christian framework. The college’s very reason for being is to point students towards the forgiving and saving love of Christ.

Our school pastor and chaplain assist teachers in Christian Studies, and coordinate worship and Bible study across the college. They work closely with the pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church, Ashmore and are also available for counselling and assisting any members of our college community in pastoral need.

National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program Guidelines


Worship is central to college life. The college worship program involves a variety of formats. In the junior years it takes various forms, including morning class devotions, prayer time and special seasonal worship activities. Weekly chapel services are designed to allow students to participate joyfully and in a meaningful way by singing, praising God, hearing His word, and praying. Parents, friends and grandparents are most welcome to attend. Each class will present at least one chapel service for their peers and visitors each year.

Formal chapels are conducted on both the Cotlew Street and Ashmore Road campuses weekly.

Junior Years: Every Friday in the Robert Hoff Community Hall at 8.55 am.

Middle & Senior Years: Every Thursday in The Trinity Centre at 8.35am.

Smaller less formal devotions occur in classrooms (Junior Years) and in pastoral care groups (Middle & Senior Years) as part of the pastoral care and House programs.

The college recognises the wide range of needs and denominations within its community. Worship programs are rounded in Lutheran theology, and are structured in such a way as to nurture spiritual and faith formation.

Parents, grandparents and friends are welcome to attend chapel services.
