North Lancs

COVID-19 – Update: The team have been on furlough for most of the past 3 months, but we are now returning slowly to our normal working hours. We have been making various resources including videos for primary and secondary schools and worksheets to download, and we will continue making these whilst we cannot be physically in schools!

For our activity sheets see the links to the right (or below if you are viewing this on a mobile) –

Our team

The NISCU North Lancs team includes four Schools Workers, specialising in Primary and Secondary, who work to strengthen links between schools and Churches in the locality. Then there are a host of other helpers and volunteers. Between us we cover an area from Carnforth to Garstang including Lancaster, Morecambe, Heysham, and the many surrounding villages. During the 2018-19 academic year we visited 64 schools between us!

We can offer:

Lessons to support the curriculum,

Assemblies, including the famous Christmas Puppet Roadshow and Walk Through Easter for Primary schools,

JAM clubs, resourcing volunteers to run Primary school clubs where children can explore what Jesus And Me might mean for them,

Secondary school Christian Unions, Spirituality/Enrichment Days, Listening Services, plus anything else we can offer to meet needs in a school,

We send out regular updates:

Miracle Mondays – a term time weekly prayer bulletin sent to your email. Contact a schools worker to sign up.

And termly newsletters (see the link on the right).

And we run:

Encouragement Evenings for Christian Schools workers, teachers, TAs, governors and other supporters, to meet and have some time out amid the busyness of school life!

 

For more information as a teacher, student, parent, Church leader or potential volunteer, please use our contact page to talk to one of our staff, who will be glad to answer all your questions.
