The Integral Project Dinner
The Integral ProjectDinner was launched by AnglicanEdComm in 2009 to promote the integration of faith and learning within schools. It was inspired by the very influential Charis Project that has been conducted by the Stapleford Centre in Nottingham for over a decade. Through that Project, teachers in Britain acquired access to a plethora of booklets on how to teach the mandated curriculum Christianly.
The Integral Dinner promotes biblically-shaped education, and is about translating a biblical worldview into every aspect of school life. Its focus has been on encouraging individual schools to initiate their own projects through which a biblically-based approach to education can be embedded within the culture of their schools.
The Integral Dinner does not offer simple, slick solutions. It provides a network of like-minded Christian educators, supporting one another to ‘light lots of little fires’ through which education can be a transformative force in Anglican schools. It provides encouragement to schools, Stage and faculty groups as well as individual teachers to initiate school-based projects which integrate Christian faith in an authentic manner with educational practice.
The next Integral Project Dinner will be held on October 25, 2018
