For well over a hundred years there has been an annual recognition of Education Sunday in England and Wales.
It is a national day of prayer and celebration for everyone in the world of education.
The theme is devised by an ecumenical steering group representing different Christian denominations and organisations.
For some years it has been celebrated on the ninth Sunday before Easter, however from 2016, after extensive consultation, it will be celebrated on the second Sunday in September to coincide with the start of the school year.
The resources are intended to be used as a springboard for a variety of events on or around Education Sunday.
Education Sunday is promoted by an ecumenical steering group in association with the Churches’ Joint Education Policy Committee. The ecumenical steering group comprises representatives from the following eight organisations:
Association of Christian Teachers
Roman Catholic Church
Church of England National Society
Student Christian Movement
United Reformed Church
Material for previous years is in the Education Sunday Archive.
