HISTORY OF CASS
Christians & Sheffield Schools (CaSS) grew out of the appointment of Linda Chambers as Scripture Union’s Schools Worker for Sheffield in 1985.
By 1991 Linda realised that there was no focal point for Christians who wanted to serve schools around the city. It was difficult to find out what was going on and who was doing what. Christians serving schools also needed to know how schools operated and what opportunities to serve were available. This lack of knowledge, information and expertise often resulted in any Christian contribution to/support of school life going unrealised.
CaSS was established with the aim of standing in or minding the gap between Christians/a church and a school. It is our vision to enable and encourage Christians to serve schools in the city.
