The Bishop of Dover, the Rt Revd Trevor Willmott, has urged people to give thanks for all who work in schools, especially governors, this Education Sunday.
Education Sunday will take place on 11 September 2016 and is a national day of prayer and celebration for everyone in the world of education. Free resources are available here and a special prayer has been written by Bishop Trevor for the occasion.
Prayer for Education Sunday:
for the gifts of knowledge, understanding and wisdom.
for governors and volunteers who ensure that young people get the best from their schools.
Reward their selfless enthusiasm with your loving guidance.
Bless all current and former staff in our schools. From caretakers and administrators to teachers and headteachers, thank you for their counsel, patience and care.
Thank you for our children,
Guide them in the knowledge of your loving presence.
