BACK TO SCHOOL WITH GOD SUNDAY
SUNDAY 30 AUGUST 2015,
OR WHENEVER SUITS YOU!
Back to School with God Sunday is a fantastic way to pray for and support your children, young people and school staff at the start of a new school year. It is an excellent bridge between church and school, and an encouragement for Christian pupils and staff to recognise the fact that God is not confined to church, but goes with them to school.
The specific aims of Back to School with God Sunday are:
- To raise awareness of prayer for schools in general and the need for prayer for local schools in particular;
- To support and encourage Christian pupils and staff in their daily life at school, and as part of this, to let them know they are valued and prayed for by the local church;
- To challenge Christian pupils and staff to live out their faith in the school environment, and in particular to support any Christian witness in their school.
Many churches use the service as an outreach to school staff, inviting them along. Others involve children and young people in leading the service, and particularly in praying for their schools.
