CCFE, under the leadership of Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, would love to welcome you to our annual national day conference in Birmingham, entitled, ‘Christian Values and Education in a Rapidly Changing Culture’. This is planned for Saturday 17th October.
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, even during this challenging time.
Our keynote speakers include Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali, President of the Oxford Centre for Training Research and Advocacy and Former Bishop of Rochester, and Peter Mitchell, who worked as Education Policy Officer for the Evangelical Alliance. We will also hear from Ron Skelton who is Head at Broadway Academy, a school in a very multicultural area of Birmingham. In addition to keynote speakers, there will be seminars with leading and highly experienced practitioners. We also hope to have public figures from the local area contributing.
Please do book in through our Eventbrite page:
If you have any questions, please do reply to this e-mail or call 0203 327 1139 and ask to speak to Emily Bourne.
Note: This event will go ahead using a Zoom format should government restrictions on movement be in place.
