Our experienced team offers a wide range of activity to support our Borough's schools. We work in both Primary and Secondary Schools and offer It's Your Move books as part of the transition between the two.
CICS is part of Scripture Union with a local trustee board who oversee the work. Explore this web site to find out more or click on the leaflet below (leaflet for schools / leaflet for church communities)...
This year the work of CICS celebrates 20 years since the initial meetings to look at how the church in Calderdale supports our schools.
20 years on and the Trustees and Workers sensed that we needed to evaluate the work of CICS in a changing educational and cultural environment.
We realised that the main need in schools is around pastoral support.
To this end we are looking to change the way we work. Our heart is to become an integrated part of High Schools in the Borough as we see that better fits the needs of schools and young people. This will take time - but do please continue to support, pray and stand with us as we work this out!
CICS will, however, continue to work across the whole of Calderdale as, partnering with local church communities, we distribute 2,000 copies of 'It's Your Move' books to Y6 children each year and encourage church/school links with this and 'Open the Book'. Where invited we will still aim to offer assemblies, faith days and lessons in High Schools.
Many thanks for your continued support...
