Education Conference and ACT AGM Saturday 24th November.

“Identity, Sexuality and the Gospel: A better story for our schools”

 

A day conference for all Christians involved and interested in Education

 

 

Aim of the conference:  To provide a collegial forum for Christians involved in education (Heads, Teachers, TAs, Governors, parents and others) to develop a view of education which is authentically Christian and to be equipped to face the social and political challenges in the UK today., especially as they affect views on identity, sexuality, marriage and the family.

 

Date:  Saturday 24 November 2018

 

Venue:  St. Ebbe’s Church, Oxford (central Oxford: easily reached from Oxford Station or Park & Ride buses)

 

Cost: Delegates are asked to contribute £10 towards the costs of the conference.

 

Principal speakers: Dr. Stanton Jones, Professor of Psychology at Wheaton College, Illinois, USA; Rev. Vaughan Roberts, Rector of St. Ebbe’s; Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, former Bishop of Rochester. We shall also be hearing from a variety of politicians and seminar leaders. 

Dr. Stanton Jones writes that he hopes to cover the following topics during the course of the day:

  • Understand the “spirit of the times” that is eroding the traditional stance of Christians globally on sexuality and sexual ethics;
  • Strengthen the ability to articulate persuasively and positively a Christian understanding of sexuality that is comprehensive and compelling;
  • Deepen your appreciation for the contributions to and limitations of science in enhancing our understandings of persons and their sexuality
  • Understand a model of character development that will foster effective teacher-student-parent collaboration and communication and set a redemptive context for effective child discipline;
  • Cast a vision for family, school and church collaboration in enhancing the internalization of Christian morality by our students

NEU ATL Pre-Conference Christian Service.

NEU ATL Pre-Conference   Christian Service St Michael in the City Sunday 8th April 6.45   pm St Michael in the City is in the heart of   Liverpool, in the shadow of the Anglican Cathedral, with a small friendly   congregation who meet on a Sunday morning. The church building is a   functional replacement for the original, which was modelled on St Martin in   the Fields, but which sadly suffered comprehensive damage in the May 1941   blitz.

The church (at L1 5BD on Upper Pitt Street) is   a ten-minute walk from the Conference Centre and the hotels. There is a small   car park at the front of the church.

The service provides an opportunity to reflect   on the needs of Education and to pray specifically for the work of   Conference. Our service will start at 6.45 pm and will be led as usual by   Conference members and local members of the education service, with an   invited guest speaker. The NEU ATL Pre-Conference Service is an ecumenical   Christian service open to all who would like to attend, of any faith or none   and whether or not members of NEU and ATL.

Coaches to the Church will be provided from the   Conference Centre at 6.25 pm.

After the service, which will last about an   hour, coaches will return to all the hotels.
