What we do
Gather: To build relationships and unity
We gather Christians to build relationships, exchange news, get a better overview and build a “network of networks” involved with education. We gather them at a variety of events, small (such as gatherings for teachers in pubs!) and large, starting with over 5k people at the Arise Bristol! Ashton Gate stadium gathering in 2012, where we prayed for and released individuals involved in Education.
Grow: To learn from God and each other
We pray regularly together for one another, and for every aspect of education across the Bristol region. We have seminars to explore Education issues from Christian perspectives, such as at the Going Deeper gathering at the Colston Hall in 2013.
Go!: To act together and as individuals
As a result of growing relationships, the Christian community can take strategic action together, for the good of Education in the city, for example through City Office. Breakfast is provided in 30 or more of the most deprived schools, thousands of children who are on free school meals are fed over the school holidays, about 20 churches provide mentors for children who are in danger of exclusion, through Transforming Lives for Good. We also collaborate with all the organisations and networks listed below.
