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.

With the Church

Our commitment for 2018 and beyond is to train and equip local churches and organisations, aiming to encourage more provision of schools work, by offering tailor made training days. Training is an opportunity to connect with others, network, and pass on knowledge. Mattie Bagley, of The Wellspring Community said, “Brilliant! The session was very informative and definitely expanded my awareness. Speakers were passionate about sharing and teaching us and very informative. A good awareness of the schools environment gained.” We are training providers for Open The Book, part of the Bible Society. We offer churches, organisations, and individuals training to enrich their local school’s life as storytellers. We also host termly Christians in Education networking events, and meet to pray regularly with a partner charity.
