Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education

Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education believes that the children and young people in our churches not only represent the future of the Church of England, they are a vital component in the dynamic, creative, witnessing and worshipping church of today. Children and young people are not simply vessels to fill or objects to mould, but are the teachers, disciples, inspirers and leaders of and for today. Our Vision is to see the faith of our children and young people grow, to experience the development of creative and profound new worshipping communities, and to encourage witness and outreach as they feel confident to share their faith with others. We want to support, equip and advise our parish leaders, both lay and ordained, to work with and through their churches and in partnership across their communities, to help to teach and grow children and young people of all backgrounds and in all contexts as confident disciples of Jesus.
