I went along to a church and schools Inspire event last night with one of our FCG partner organisations, Pray for Schools. Jane Newey, their co-ordinator for England, and I had an inspiring evening, praying with and chatting to the other exhibition stand-holders, as well as the visitors from schools and churches in Somerset. The event was hosted by the GoTeam from the Diocese of Bath & Wells, at Holy Trinity Church in Frome. We had over 30 people there, keen to make the most of how their church could link with their local school.

You may be interested in some of the organisations who were there, to help you in your church develop and strengthen your links to schools in your area:

Big Start Assemblies

Prayer Space in Schools

Lots of ways for us to get inspired.

Join us as we pray…

Thank you Father for our schools. We praise You Lord, for You are full of love, peace and hope. Please help us to be people of good news sharing your love, peace and hope into schools. Please help us to build good relationships with everyone. Please help us to be peace makers when there is tension and stress. Please help us to bring hope when there is despair and dejection. Please help us inspire others to be joyful when there is much to celebrate. Please help us demonstrate your love Amen

Prayer written by Lisa Jones, Scripture Union’s representative on the Pray for Schools Steering Group.
