Education Sunday – September 13th 2020
The date: Sunday 13 September
The theme: A learning people in a time of change
This year Education Sunday takes place at a time when many children, young people and staff have been away from schools, colleges and universities and have been working in different ways. Churches, too, have had to learn and adapt, whilst still maintaining a pattern of worship. This is a time to think about what we have learnt about ourselves, about our communities and about God. We’d love to hear from you about what you have learnt during this time. Why not send us your thoughts – just a sentence or two, plus a picture of yourself, if you’re happy for them to be used on our website and in a resource for churches? You can send them to Sarah Lane Cawte at [email protected]
If you’re a prayer-writer, we’d also like to include your prayers for Education Sunday, linking with this year’s theme. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, if you would like to write a prayer, we’ll include a selection of them for others to use. Please send them to the email address above.
What is Education Sunday?
