Schools Team

We work in schools across the city and surrounding areas delivering presentations, workshops, and training. Our presentations include engaging assemblies, assisting schools with collective worship, and supporting school children with Social, Moral, Spiritual, and Cultural (SMSC) development. Additionally, we write and deliver presentations to add flavour to Religious Education (RE), tailored to meet the needs of each school.

Hannah Wing, SENCO at St Nicolas and St Mary CE School, said: “Thank you to Brighton and Hove City Mission for delivering an engaging, informative, and interactive assembly at our school. The children thoroughly enjoyed the re-telling of the Christmas story and the assembly enabled them to reflect upon the true meaning of Christmas and the Advent season. We look forward to welcoming them back soon.

We facilitate workshops, such as It’s Your Move from Scripture Union for children moving onto secondary school. Teachers have said: “An excellent presentation! Thank you.” “The children were all engaged and it was nice that there were lots of different activities for them to take part in.

We also deliver prayer pathways, or reflection spaces, provide lessons to support healthy relationships, and design activities to assist with extra-curricular days.

Vision

During 2019, our team aims to support schools further by drawing alongside them, not with our own agenda, but by humbly serving the school as a whole. Our team will build upon their already strong reputation for thought-provoking presentations around the Christian festivals of Easter, Harvest, and Christmas, as well as the theme of transitioning to a new class or school. Our team will seek opportunities to work alongside churches. They will continue to train more church volunteers to take Bible storytelling into their local schools through Open The Book. They will continue to co-host the Christians In Education event with Off The Fence. They hope to grow existing relationships and create new connections with schools, churches, and other organisations to further their work with a united approach.
