Exploring a New Normal for Schools' Ministry


Girls in School Uniform

2020 and 2021 have seen the biggest shake up in schools ministry in the UK for a generation. Schools that previously had church visitors in every week had to close their doors to anyone not on staff; we learned how to do (and how not to do!) assemblies on Zoom; and the needs of the children, young people and teachers we work with - and the whole education system itself - shifted dramatically.


Now as we can start to go back 'live' into schools, come and be equipped to re-engage (or engage for the first time), catching the vision for this new season of ministry with all of the challenges and opportunities that it presents.

BOOST 2022 will feature an exciting programme of content led by subject matter experts and specialists for everyone called to live for Christ in school, including Children's, Youth, Families' and Schools Workers & Volunteers​, Parents/Carers and Church Leaders.  

We are delighted to be welcoming Dr. Sarah Holmes (Liverpool Hope University) and Lucy Moore (Growing Faith Foundation) as our keynote speakers.

The day will involve a variety of talks, workshops, activity sessions and a marketplace where you can interact directly with leading practitioners and experts in schools ministry.

Lunch and refreshments are included in your ticket price.
