As we approach the exam season for many children, young people and students in schools, colleges and universities across the UK, why not share the Gathering Prayer from last year's Education Sunday resources in your churches in the coming weeks? This can be used, shared and adapted during your prayers of intercession for the needs in your community.
It can be a time of great stress for children and young people, as focus their energies on revision and planning for exams.... so join us as we pray for schools, colleges, young people, students and teachers.... Let us pray...
And what will you be doing on Sunday 9th September 2018?
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 to be announced soon and the materials will be available to download in the summer. This is devised by an ecumenical steering group representing different Christian denominations and organisations. The resources are intended to be used as a springboard for a variety of events on or around Education Sunday.
So make a note in your diary and check out the resources later in the summer.
The date for 2018 is 9th September 2018
