For well over a hundred years there has been an annual recognition of Education Sunday in England and Wales.

It is a national day of prayer and celebration for everyone in the world of education.

The theme is devised by an ecumenical steering group representing different Christian denominations and organisations.

For some years it was celebrated on the ninth Sunday before Easter, however since 2016, after extensive consultation, it has been celebrated on the second Sunday in September, coinciding with the start of the school year.

So we at All Saints’ are celebrating it on the 8th September with a special Family Service at which we will be welcoming Sarah Earnshaw, diocesan children’s work adviser as a guest speaker. – all welcome to join us.
