Education Sunday 2020
Education Sunday 2020 will take place on Sunday 13 September.
The theme for 2020 will be "A learning people in a time of change".
This year Education Sunday takes place at a time when many children, young people and staff have been away from schools, colleges and universities and have been working in different ways. Churches, too, have had to learn and adapt, whilst still maintaining a pattern of worship. This is a time to think about what we have learnt about ourselves, about our communities and about God.
An introduction to the 2020 theme has been written by Barbara Easton, Vice-President of the Methodist Conference 2021-22 and Head of Service, Methodist Academies and Schools Trust.
The Bible passages are:
Get involved - prayers and reflection
There are two ways in which you can make a contribution to Education Sunday before September:
Write a prayer about education, connecting with the theme. Anyone of any age is invited to do this.
Think about what you have learnt in this time of change. Write it down and send it, ideally with a photo of yourself (stating your permission for us to use it). You might have learnt something about yourself, something about your community, something about God – we’d love to know, and we’ll include these in our online resource.
If you’re sending a prayer or telling us what you’ve learnt, please send them to the Education Sunday Cordinator, Sarah Lane Cawte
