Event description

Description

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.

  • Dr. Stanton Jones, Professor of Psychology at Wheaton College, Illinois, USA;
  • Rev. Vaughan Roberts, Rector of St. Ebbe’s;
