How can the local church and school work better together to nurture the spiritual nature of all of our children?

This is the key question we’ll be exploring in this new conference for clergy, volunteers from our parishes and Headteachers from our church primary schools.   

Part of the new Diocesan strategy is to build better and stronger links between churches and schools. This conference will be part of that journey, and is part of a pilot project between the Diocese education and ministry teams working together with CPAS. With their help we hope to open up deep conversations about the spiritual development of children in our Church of England primary schools and their local parish communities.

Taking it's inspiration from the Nexus Report by the NICER (Canterbury University) that explores where home, school and church meet to foster a child’s spiritual development, the conference will challenge us to think more about how together we can do things differently and better. See the great animation to find out more about the faith in the NEXUS research and to inspire these conversations in your school and church leadership teams.

We would love you join with us as we journey together, and discover how we can better nurture the spirituality of all the children in our care.
