On 21 October, Alphacrucis College and the King's Christian College hosted by invitation a group of leading educators, planners, architects, pastors and system executives to consider the challenges and potential of planing new Christian Schools. The aim of the day was to share experiences of different models and approaches towards the planting on new schools, whether by expansion, establishing on Greenfield sites, acquisition, campus division and rhizoming, or rescuing failing schools. Presentations and case studies from some of the leading practitioners in the field were enjoyed by the select group of leaders. While thankful for the remarkable growth of the sector, the NSP Group reaffirmed the need to do more to re-ignite the missional momentum which was in the early school establishments of the 1970s and 1980s. A further seminar, expanding the group to prospective and aspirational school planters, and a national Summit will be held in 2020.
