Faith at Home - #faithathome - was launched on Thursday 30th April 2020 and is a national campaign that builds on the work of Growing Faith and Everyday Faith to support the faith development and pastoral care of children and young people. It is aimed at linking schools, parishes and households during this period of the pandemic as well as supporting what things may look like going forward.
All the resources are available at https://www.churchofengland.org/faith-action/faith-home and resources will be available under three headings – I am a school leader; I am a parent; and I am a church leader. There will be new resources every week linked to the national Collective Worship provided by the Oak National Academy https://www.thenational.academy/extracurricular/faith-at-home.
There will be a new one every Friday for the whole of the summer term with dioceses providing resources for each week. It will hopefully be a really good resource to help support you with what you are already doing for Collective Worship at home.
There are three video clips already on the site that you may want to highlight to your school community through your own communications:
a. A thank you to School leaders - https://youtu.be/M1QrEtPYkbg
b. A thank you Parents - https://youtu.be/FTnyICpSVMAc. A thank you to Church leaders - https://youtu.be/Q-y2OtEfGzw
There is also a fantastic song that has been written and it is hoped that this may be used across all schools. We hope that as many schools as possible may learn it and make their own version. All the details can be found at https://worshipforeveryone.com/looking-to-the-rainbow and there is a copy of the original Worship for Everyone Film - https://vimeo.com/412881668/c727412703
