Education Sunday – 16th February
Do you pray for our local schools – the teachers and students alike? If not, here is a good time to start: on Education Sunday, which is always held on the ninth Sunday before Easter.
Education Sunday began more than 100 years ago as a national day of prayer and celebration for everyone involved in education. Today, our prayers are needed every bit as much as ever, as teachers and students alike face ever increasing demands upon them.
Education Sunday this year will look at the theme of ‘Going Above and Beyond’, and will be based on Matthew 5.21-37.
