Invitation to discuss faith, education and school governorship

Wednesday April 3rd 2024

Clergy and members of local Church of Ireland, Presbyterian and Methodist congregations are invited to take part in a series of events in early April to discuss the role of the Church and local schools. 

The three Churches in Schools events – two of which take place in Connor Diocese – are organised by the Transferor Representatives’ Council.

Each will be an opportunity to share the current issues in the relationship between faith and education, and churches and schools, and for TRC to support churches in their role in nominating school governors.  The three events will take place as follows:

Lisburn: Tuesday, 9th April
10.30am – 12.30pm

Venue: Vic-Ryn, T3 Conference Centre, 5 Rathdown Walk, Lisburn BT28 2RE

Coleraine: Wednesday, 10th April
2.00pm – 4.00pm          

Venue: New Row Presbyterian Church, New Row, Coleraine BT52 1LA

Enniskillen: Thursday, 11th April
10.30am – 12.30pm     

Venue: St Macartin’s Cathedral Halls, Hall’s Lane, Enniskillen BT74 7DR

Please indicate which event you wish to attend at

Refreshments will be provided with special dietary requirements accommodated.

The Transferor Representatives’ Council oversees the appointment of over 1,500 governors, nominated by its member churches, for controlled schools.  The controlled school sector is open to all pupils, and includes over 500 schools, 148,000 pupils and 8,000 teachers across Northern Ireland.
