Flourish Schools is about churches recognising God's call to work with schools - so that children and young people, communities and churches can be transformed and flourish in all aspects of life, both physical and spiritual.

Flourish aims to

  • help and inspire churches to recognise that God is present and at work in their local schools and invites us to join in.
  • encourage and resource circuits to build relationships with their local schools to enable mutual flourishing.
  • offer support, as churches get involved in schools, to share, learn, grow and inspire each other.
  • build confidence to enable churches to recognise their many resources to engage with schools (experience, time, skills, prayer, buildings, finance, love).
  • encourage churches to prioritize, wherever possible, those communities where people are experiencing economic poverty or are marginalised.

We hope these pages will help churches to do the following:

  • Pray for their schools
  • Encourage people who are involved in or attend schools

We're also encouraging churches to think about getting involved with a local school through the following process:

  1. Discuss
  2. Discern
  3. Connect
  4. Build
