One of our core Baptist values is to be a prophetic presence in society. Whether in schools, colleges and universities our Christian voice is important when it comes to influencing a broad range of concerns. This includes issues such as how differences in religion and faith are handled, whether space for collective worship continues to be offered to children and young people, what is included in the national curriculum, values and governance of these educational communities so that everyone is valued and no one favoured.
The aim of the Baptist Education Group is to inform, encourage and support participation whether nationally through the Free Churches Education Committee or locally supporting members of SACREs or by helping churches build strategic relationships with their local schools.
Whether you are involved in education in some way or have concerns for some of the issues you are hearing about, or have an encouraging story please get in touch.
