Christian Connections in Schools
Christian Connections in Schools is a registered charity (No. 1150149) with a vision to make Jesus known in primary and secondary schools in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead through partnership with local churches and in association with Scripture Union.
This is done through a range of work from assemblies and lessons and supporting Christian groups to large scale events and residential trips. Currently we employ Wayne Dixon who works in a number of secondary schools in the area and was the Scripture Union schools worker for Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead for over 25 years. CCiS aims to sustain him in continuing and enlarging this role, by administering the support offered by churches and individuals who value the outstanding relationships he enjoys with staff and students alike.
But why bother with Schools Ministry?
- In 1904 56% of children were in church
- Today there are just 4%
- 99% of children and young people attend school
- 96% of children and young people will only hear about Jesus in school
