care-logo-1000x1000CARE (Christian Action Research and Education)

“CARE  is a well-established mainstream Christian charity providing resources and helping to bring Christian insight and experience to matters of public policy and practical caring initiatives. CARE demonstrates Christ’s compassion to people of all faiths and none believing that individuals are of immense value, not because of the circumstances of their birth, their behaviour or achievements, but because of their intrinsic worth as people. CARE is represented in the UK Parliaments and Assemblies, at the EU in Brussels and the UN in Geneva and New York.”

ACT (Association of Christian Teachers)

The Association of Christian Teachers  (ACT) is a non-denominational Christian membership organisation that provides professional and spiritual support to Christians engaged in pre-school, primary, middle, secondary, special, college and university education in England.       ACT also has become a Christian voice in the media relating to all education matters.

 

Youth For Christ

 

Youth for Christ (YFC) is a national Christian charity. Working with over 250,000 young people each month, we draw alongside children and teens from every background and culture in Britain. Our 400+ full-time staff and countless local volunteers specialise in working with unchurched youth: communicating and demonstrating the Christian faith.  We believe prayer is a foundation for all we do.

 

 Scripture Union

Scripture Union is an international mission movement of staff, associates and volunteers. Working with churches and other partners, Scripture Union aims to make God’s Good News known to children, young people and families and to encourage people of all ages to meet God daily through the Bible and prayer. Through delivering pioneering mission initiatives to a professional standard partnering with others, SU aims to reach those people who were previously unreached. Schools work is an important focus of Scripture Union and therefore we are delighted to partner with Pray for Schools.

Churches Together in England

  “Churches Together” can be found at local & town, county & city, national and ‘four                             nations’ levels. It is all about relationships and each expression of ‘Churches Together’ has been established by the churches in that place and can be different in activity and membership.

Churches Together in England is a visible sign of the Churches’ commitment as they seek a deepening of their communion with Christ and with one another, and proclaim the Gospel together by common witness and service. Its strength comes from people from different traditions finding new ways to work and worship and pray together.

 

 

Prayer Spaces in Schools

Prayer Spaces In Schools enable children and young people to explore faith and spirituality from a broadly Christian perspective in a safe, creative and interactive way. A range of flexible resources can be adapted to work for participants aged 5 to 18 bringing an experiential dimension to a variety of subject areas and to pastoral aspects of school life.

Prayer Spaces in Schools is part of 24-7 Prayer.

Open the Book

Open the Book (OtB) began in 1999. Teams of between four and eight storytellers tell Bible OTB new logo master Autumn 2016

stories in primary schools – using drama, mime, props & costume – to bring the stories to life. Whether it’s as simple as a tunic for a child to wear or a large scale boat, the props make all the difference! Open the Book has thousands of volunteers from local churches, dramatizing Bible Stories in a programme to provide a daily act of collective worship/assembly to work together and support their local school. There is also the option to use extra Bible stories with a Christian Values approach. The stories are all carefully scripted and directed for use in an educational context.

All Open the Book teams are encouraged to pray before they present the assembly/act of collective worship and each Open the Book assembly/act of collective worship includes the option for children to join in a prayer at the end. We would encourage all churches and individuals to pray for our schools, educators, children and their families.
