Helping primary schools engage with Christianity

Since 1986 we’ve supported primary schools with assemblies, clubs and RE lessons. We are linked with nearly 100 schools in South London and the South East.

We have warm and professional relationships with headteachers and staff in the schools we visit. Our presence is a vital link between schools and local churches.

We write our own material. Much of it is freely available for you to access, use and adapt. Everything on this site is tried and tested. We know it works because we have used it ourselves.

France definitely (from my limited geographical research) has the best coffee shops in all the world. One particular coffee shop in Saulieu in the Dordogne region of France was simply wonderful!

Time and Space

Perhaps it is a result of too much Sci-Fi, but the expression ‘time and space’ tried to capture the unlimited size and scope of the universe. However, in our real world, both are limited. Both sought after. Both somewhat fundamental for life.
