We run two main projects for schools.
The Schools Bible Project was launched with a pilot project in 1989 and over the next years grew steadily in scope. In 2014 the Silver Jubilee of the project was marked with a Thanksgiving Service at St Margaret’s, Westminster, attended by pupils from schools across Britain with the Dean of Westminster preaching. It draws hundreds of entries every year, and the winners come to London to receive their prizes in a ceremony at the House of Lords. In the Project, pupils at secondary schools are invited to study some of the major events in the life of Christ, and to write about one of them as if they had actually been present.
The Children’s Handwriting and Artwork Project is sponsored by Christian Projects and is run by various local groups of different Christian denominations in Britain. It involves the children learning the Lord’s Prayer, copying it out, and answering simple questions to show their understanding of it. Prizes are awarded and every entrant recieves a special commemorative card with the Lord’s Prayer on it.
