Education Sunday 2020
Education Sunday 2020 will take place on Sunday 13 September.
The theme for 2020 will be "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.
An introduction to the 2020 theme has been written by Barbara Easton, Vice-President of the Methodist Conference 2021-22 and Head of Service, Methodist Academies and Schools Trust.
His Eminence Archbishop Angaelos, Coptic Orthodox Archbishop of London and CTE President, has written a reflection for Education Sunday 2020.
For the first time on Education Sunday, we are able to bring you an inter-generational service, hosted on YouTube. This service for all ages has been produced by the United Reformed Church Children's and Youth Work national team and friends, on behalf of Churches Together in England. It will premiere on this YouTube link on Education Sunday, 13 September 2020, and will remain active for viewing after that date.
The Bible passages are:
