What is Engage Schools?
In recent years the churches in Telford & Wrekin have been working hard at building relationships with our Secondary Schools. This has led to a number of regular engagements including prayer spaces, taking assemblies, lay chaplains and RE lessons. In addition the visits of Tom Elliott in the last few years have had a significant impact. We now believe the time is right to establish a Secondary Schools project
What's the vision?
To provide for every student & young person at Secondary School in Telford and Wrekin opportunities to engage with Christian spirituality
What's the strategy?
Telford Christians Together is partnering with Catalyst Youth Trust to recruit a fulltime Schools Worker, aiming for a start date of January 2019. Catalyst Youth Trust have a proven track record of Schools and Youth Work in Shropshire. We would employ John Prockter the Catalyst Youth Trust Director for 25% of his time to enable us to see the project established and work alongside our Schools Worker. The project would then look to appoint a second fulltime worker and interns in due course so that we can maximise the opportunities we have.
