Education Sunday is a national day of prayer and celebration for everyone involved in the world of education. For more than 100 years there has been an annual recognition of Education Sunday in England and Wales (traditionally on the ninth Sunday before Easter). However for 2016 it has moved to a fixed date in September.

The resources on the Education Sunday Website are designed to help you prepare for your own celebration on or around Education Sunday, or on any other day throughout the year, such as at the start or end of the academic year. You can use these resources in your church, in local schools, colleges and universities and in other places of learning.
The Feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple (Candlemas) fell on 2 February in 2015 Many parishes and churches will be celebrating this feast on the nearest Sunday. This year’s material therefore focuses on that moment in the Christian year.
