Funding appeal

Dear friends,
On behalf of Sunrise Christian School, I would like to thank you all for your interest in our school life and in Christian education. We are ever grateful for those of you praying for the school. We are a small school with a big vision! We believe that Christian education should be available all over this country and parents should have a choice where to send their children.
Sunrise Christian School started with parents praying for a Christian school. Over the past few years by God’s grace the means of running the school often came through kind donations from our supporters.
We have truly been blessed with wonderful Christian teachers who are devoted to giving children Christian perspective throughout their education. A major objective is to keep the school affordable for all families who would like to have their children benefit from Christian education.
The School is reliant on additional fundraising activities to help with the day to day running costs, materials, staff wages. This is an appeal to those who may be led by The Lord, are able and inclined to support the school by making a one off or regular donation. Our school is part of seeing living Christian reformation in our nation again! We are very grateful for any donations, it all adds up. The easiest way to contribute, is to use the BT my donate link on our website: https://mydonate.bt.com/donation/donate.html?charity=sunrisechristianschool
The site allows you to make a single or regular donation with the option of gift aid.
Thank you.

June prayer requests

The last month of the school year has come. It has brought wonderful blessings of answered prayer!

Let us thank God for:
– Providing Mr Markoff, the teacher we have all been praying for, who is helping lead and guide the school through God’s grace.
– For all the people who are supporting Sunrise Christian School through monetary contributions and those who are giving their time as volunteers.
– The vision and commitment of the school Board for more Christian schools nation-wide.

Please pray for:
– A suitable building to be found to expand our school’s capacity and help to move forward with provision of much needed secondary Christian education.
– More successful fundraising events that we can enjoy together.
– The news of Sunrise Christian School to be spread far and wide around the country, and that more people understand the necessity of Christian education in our day.
– That Government legislation will not prevent the existence of Christian schools.

“Continue in prayer, and watch in it with thanksgiving;” Colossians 4:2.

Very Chocolicious Fundraiser

Saturday the 10th of June we held a fantastic fundraising event at our school. Themed “Very Chocolicious” it embraced a variety of home-made chocolate creations kindly created by parents and staff. The coffee shop was open to all visitors from 1:30 – 3:30 pm.
The table was truly bountiful. It was chocolate heaven! Thanks to all who kindly participated and those who came to support the school. A big THANK YOU to the organiser – Mrs Janneke Fraser who put massive amount of work into making this event a success. We all had a wonderful time working and socialising together. A wee plant sale was organised just outside the entrance, to which parents contributed plants and seedlings. The event raised £311.66.
If you have any ideas for raising funds for the school, please let us know. Whether it is a penny collection held by your family, collection box at your local church, sponsored walk or cycle. Whatever idea you have, we will encourage you to support the work of our school in teaching children to God’s glory and making them aware of the greatness of our Lord through all aspects of education.
