Serving Local Schools


After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the LORD nor what he had done for Israel. 
Judges 2:10



Welcome to this diocesan resource to inspire and support you as you seek to Serve Your Local Schools! I speak to many churches who are only too aware of the importance and urgency of reaching children and young people with the Good News of the Christian Gospel. But how to do that effectively? I think a vital part of the answer is by serving them in committed relationships with their schools.

Building lasting relationships with local schools offers two things:

  • the opportunity to stand alongside the other major pillar of our communities – our schools – and to serve them
  • to allow schools to have a look at their local church and maybe find that we have more to offer them than they had thought.

Please let me know what you would like to see in these pages and send me the best bits of what you’re doing to share with others.

With love in Jesus,
Rev Sue Mayo
