About this event

The Christian Coalition for Education (CCFE), under the leadership of Dr Michael Nazir-Ali would love to welcome you to our annual national day conference entitled, ‘Christian Values and Education in a Rapidly Changing Culture: Equipping Christians for influence in Education Settings'

This sponsored event is organised by a wide range of Christian organisations and representatives from education settings around the country. The aim of the conference is to equip Christians for influencing a variety of educational settings, by discussing the most relevant issues and hearing from both practitioners and thinkers.

We are able to provide this event at a subsidised rate of £20, due to the generosity of those associated with CCFE. A light lunch will be provided. Please note, this is an in person only event so it will be a great opportunity to for networking with other interested in education.

Our keynote speakers include Dr Nazir-Ali, President of the Oxford Centre for Training Research and Advocacy, and Former Bishop of Rochester, and Ron Skelton, Head at Broadway Academy, a school in a very multicultural area of Birmingham. Steve Beegoo, Head of Education at Christian Concern, will be speaking on Christian Responses to Relationships and Sex Education.
