eD 8 Churches and Dioceses Resourcing Community Schools


How best might Christians and networks of churches serve community schools, academies, free schools and other education centres in their locality? Could these schools look to the Christian community for a new dimension of support and partnership that will more powerfully benefit the families they serve?

This booklet aims to explore these questions by giving practical examples that will provide challenge and help spark fresh thinking.
