News re 2016 date change

 

For well over a hundred years there has been an annual recognition of Education Sunday in England and Wales.

It is a national day of prayer and celebration for everyone in the world of education.

The theme is devised by an ecumenical steering group representing different Christian denominations and organisations.

For some years it has been celebrated on the ninth Sunday before Easter, however for 2016, after extensive consultation, it will be moved to coincide with the start of the school year.

The resources are intended to be used as a springboard for a variety of events on or around Education Sunday.
Churches who wish to keep Education Sunday in January 2016, do use resources from previous years. A new suite of resources are planned for September 2016.
