What we do

We have regular input and involvement in a large number of local schools, both primary and secondary, where we perform a variety of different roles.

Assemblies

We take many assemblies – helping schools to fulfil the requirement for a daily act of collective worship. Our assemblies are fun and highly interactive, and they show how the Christian message is relevant to today’s world. We always aim to work to the needs of the schools, either in fulfilling the SIAS curriculum or in covering topics that are requested by the schools themselves.

Christian Unions

We help lead groups in several schools that support pupils of a Christian faith or those who are interested in it. These ‘Christian Unions’ or ‘Faith Groups’ are run with the support and help of the schools and are fully inclusive. We have had students of different beliefs and backgrounds come along to the groups and they are always welcomed. Some have come specifically because they have felt included by the students there.

RE Lessons

We take an active part in many RE/PSHE/Philosophy lessons to help schools teach matters relating to the Christian faith. We are often asked to do this because we are able to present the Christian faith in a relevant and respectful way.

Courses

We run courses in both primary and secondary schools, encouraging the students to consider their attitudes, values and character. These are the ‘L!fe’ course for primary age children and ‘ibreakout’ for secondary students. More details of these are available on request. 

Services & Events

We also take part in many services and special celebration events in schools during the year, often alongside local clergy. 

Hannah Moore and Jonny Hardway are employed on behalf of our churches to foster the Christian Faith through local schools where they have developed a good deal of trust and respect. The project produces a regular newsletter which is always put in church for people to read.
