Schools Ministry – God Continues to Attend School!
For some years we have found Government schools a more and more difficult place to do ministry. This has driven us to God in prayer seeking his wisdom for a clearer pathway for our volunteers from churches to love and serve in their local schools.
As a result of this time of prayer and discernment we now have an invigorated team led by Schools Coordinator Laura Stone, and a renewed focus for working in Government schools in two specific areas; one being supporting Christian students in small groups and the other supporting Christian teachers in Government schools.
This year we have developed a Christian version of our CHIC and Blokes programs, making it an incredible resource for Christian schools. We have also formed two amazing mentoring teams, who have started engaging in their local schools. Sally Howe has been developing our student group ministry, which will encourage Christian students to live out their faith at school both by connecting with one another and a wider network of Government school Christian students.
Our ever-faithful SUPA Club teams at Mundaring and Singleton Primary Schools have continued to bring both truth and fun to the children in these schools over the last 12 months. The relationships that are growing are phenomenal, with over half the children attending being from non-Christian families.
In the coming months we will be relaunching our Christian Teachers Network – so keep your eye out for more info!
