About the Project
Why we do what we do?
The Christian Education Project was established in 1990 to be a bridge between Redbridge Schools and the local churches.
Between the ages of 5 and 16 we spend approx. 15,000 hours in school. With only 4% of British children regularly attending church some 96% may only hear about Christianity by the opportunities afforded in school.
What we do?
Apart from the normal lessons and assemblies, the Project seeks to make itself available to assist practically in whatever ways the schools deem appropriate. This has seen us assisting on school trips, running PHSE /Citizenship lessons, Teambuilding exercises, one to one mentoring and even staff inset training.
CEP has also been involved in facilitating Prayer Spaces in schools and organising special events / visitors.
Over the years CEP has built a strong reputation, working consistently in over 30 of the borough’s schools. Former Project Leader Neil Poole, served for a time as a co-opted member of the local Sacre in recognition of the contribution he had made to the local schools.
