Schools


WHERE ARE WE?

Churches are already serving about half of all the schools in Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch in various ways that help students learn about Jesus.  We are always looking to build more teams for more schools and we are grateful for all the opportunities that we have to help more and more students.

These are the things we'd love to be able to do for every school:
  • Build a team from local churches to visit regularly to serve the school.
  • Help every student hear something about Jesus from people who know him 6 times a year in assemblies led by the team.
In secondary schools we also aim to:
  • Provide regular lessons where students have the chance to learn about Christianity from Christians.
  • Run a weekly lunch club such as Big Questions or Youth Alpha.

We're always finding out more from schools and churches but as far as we can tell right now, here's what we know about the extent to which local churches are serving local schools to help everyone explore the Christian faith...
