A message from the Chair

Reflection from the Chair – The Venerable Carol Coslett

“The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.’ (Matthew 13: 31-32)

All of you working in Church schools will be encouraging your pupils to fulfill their own potential, to help them grow in knowledge, confidence and faith.

They need a safe space to grow in the knowledge of God’s love. We need to work as a partnership between School, Church and Community.

As Archdeacon, I have a special responsibility for the Board of Education and the DDAT.  

I am a firm believer in the power of education to make a difference and release the inner potential of our young people so they lead full and enriching lives.

We can all play a part in sowing seeds for the Kingdom of God, and I hope as I work with you that we can truly nurture the smallest of seeds and see them grow so all children of God realise their potential growing in Faith, Hope and Love.
