Back to School with God Sunday

Dates vary to fit in with start of the school year.

The 2022 theme is God’s Golden Rules

This year the resources are based on Luke 10:25-37. 

We aim to explore what it means to love God and love our neighbour through looking at the Parable of the Good Samaritan. We want to make the teaching applicable to all ages, but with a special focus on living for Jesus in school and what that might look like.

Back to School with God is all about marking the new school year – a huge milestone in the lives of individuals in our churches and communities – on a Sunday that suits you. We want to help churches send children, young people and staff back to school with God through providing resources for an all-age Sunday service which aims to

  • heighten awareness that God goes with us into school
  • reassure that the church family cares and is praying
  • challenge Christian pupils and staff to be lights for Jesus in school
  • raise awareness of year-round schools prayer.

If you include a Back to School with God element in a service, let us know what you did – it is always great to have your feedback and it provides inspiration for others as well!
