Education Sunday

On 5 February, Churches Together in England marks Education Sunday, a “national day of prayer and celebration for everyone involved in the world of education”.  As part of this, our service at Greenfield that Sunday will be somewhat different.

We’ve written to six local schools inviting their teaching staff to come to our service.  This will then be a chance to show our support as a church for these people who do such an incredible, difficult and pressurised job.  Over the last year or so we’ve had good contacts with the children from the local infant school which has been an immense pleasure and privilege.  But we want to show that we care about the teachers as well as the children.  Hence this service.

So please come along to the service, at the usual time on Sunday 5 February.  Please pray for the service, that teachers will want to come, that it will be a valuable way of showing our support as a church and God’s love for them, and that I won’t get tongue-tied talking to a church full (hopefully!) of teachers.  And, if you can, try and bring a memory of your favourite teach – what made him or her so special, how did they inspire you?
