An opportunity to help local schools?

The BBC News website is reporting today that State schools are ‘not providing group worship‘ because a study for a BBC local radio station found that, of 500 parents asked, 64% said their children did not attend daily acts of collective worship.

It’s also reported that 60% of the 1,743 people asked said the legislation shouldn’t be enforced whereas a headmaster from a school in Brighton is quoted as saying that fulfilling the government’s worship requirement was difficult.

Sounds to me like an awesome opportunity for churches and other faith-based groups to offer to get involved and help out their local schools…

With years of experience playing bass in a wide range of situations a dear friend once said that if you were to cut me in half you'd find the word 'bass' written all the way through - yes I know that's so cliche - but that doesn't make it any less true! Like so many people I have more than one 'day' job - but most of my work-time these days is spent working for Interconnected Solutions.
