Much has been said in recent years about the declining influence of Christianity in schools with many worried that schools no longer welcome the involvement of their local church. Indeed, stories appear in the press almost weekly about the death of RE lessons and the decline of the school assembly and yet this is very far from the truth.
There are still many opportunities for churches to support their local schools in creative and practical ways and to build positive relationships which can support whole school communities. It is hoped that this book will provide a tool to enable puppet ministry teams to do just that!
