This title explores the potential for getting involved and opportunities for working together in meaningful and dynamic ways. It uses a theological basis to determine ways for church members to serve their local schools. It provides practical ideas and well-founded information for engagement, including the theological basis, the spiritual needs of the school, identifying opportunities and skills, and creative use of buildings. It enables individuals and organizations to understand how the spiritual needs of the school fits into the legal requirements of the RE syllabus and the big picture of the school day. It is ideal for church leaders, lay leaders, and children's work. It is suitable for clergy, lay leaders, evangelists, children's leaders, members of governing boards and PTAs, christian parents and carers, tutors in theological institutions, CME course leaders and delegates, and education departments in Church colleges. "Local Church, Local School" examines the potential for churches to be able to help meet the spiritual needs of their local primary schools with full understanding of legal and educational requirements. Starting from a theological basis, the book moves on to examine how sustainable relationships can be built and how schools can make best use of the wide range of resources that the church can offer. The material is interlaced with stories from individuals and organizations already involved in their local schools, and includes many practical and accessible worked examples of best practice.
