The Free Church Education Committee will be meeting later in March to continue to consider, plan and act upon areas across all sectors of education - schools, further education (FE) and higher education (HE). You can read more about the vital work of the Committee HERE.
One of our Committee members, Martin Sweet, published an article in the Baptist Times a while back - Martin is Director of Spinnaker Trust and speaks on behalf of the Baptist Education Group (The Baptist Union of Great Britain are members of the Free Churches Group). You can read this powerful and challenging article HERE.
You may be interested in the article and the reasons behind why he cares about education and how our actions speak louder than words...!
** What do you do you in your church to speak up for issues which matter in education?
** How could you extend how your voice, as a Christian, is heard?
** How could you speak and act more powerfully in education and training?
** How might you get more involved in this work across and within your community?
Please pray for the work of the FC Education Commitee and the forthcoming spring meetings...
The FC Education Committee - The group seeks to encourage and support regular involvement of Free Churches in education by: reflecting on the many current concerns in any field of education and to advise or suggest an appropriate response; coordinating an appropriate response from Free Church denominations through cooperation and networking; raising awareness to ensure that member denominations, such as Baptists, and their congregations and families, are informed and empowered; promoting good, Christian values within education for all pupils; maintaining a Free Church voice within education.
