Relationships with local churches
As an ecumenical school we work closely with a range of local Christian communities. Our Mission Statement calls us to unity, and we recognize that our school, with our 1,000 students, has children who are members of a wide range of Christian communities. We welcome all Christian ministers to work with us in proclaiming the Gospel in St. Edward’s school. We have produced a short leaflet for visiting ministers, which can be accessed here (apply link please)
We have various youth workers from Church communities helping us in our work. Such work ranges from assisting with retreats, liturgical worship; religious education lessons, and counselling/mentoring. We welcome such support from Church communities and organisations.
St. Edward’s students attend retreats in various local Churches throughout the year, and we welcome ministers to bless the school at the start of every year.
If you are interested in involving St. Edward’s more deeply in your community, or would like to work with us in our mission, we would love to talk to you. Please contact the Headteacher’s PA for further information.
