The Church of England's vision for education embraces the spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, moral and social development of children and young people. The vision has a framework rooted in four basic elements:
We support chaplaincy in both schools and universities in Lancashire.
A number of Church of England Schools in Lancashire employ Youthworker Chaplains while others use the expertise of local parish clergy. Chaplains lead school worship and plan the worship programme, run extra-curricular Christian groups and are available to pupils and staff to offer support wherever and whenever it is needed; some chaplains also teach. In addition, they facilitate the celebration of the Eucharist in schools.
For more information about how we support the 180+ Primary and Secondary schools in Lancashire with Church of England links, please visit the Diocesan Board of Education website.
University chaplains offer counselling, support and guidance in matters of faith and spiritual development to students and staff. They arrange events to help develop a sense of community and a Christian presence in the University through engagement with senior staff and day to day working with young people.
