WHAT IS CASS?
CaSS (Christians and Sheffield Schools) is on a mission to encourage you to consider how you can connect with, serve, encourage, bless and build positive, professional and productive relationships with local children and young people and with all who work and learn in school.
The vision of CaSS is to enable and encourage Christians to serve schools in the city of Sheffield. CaSS connects, encourages and resources those serving schools on the frontline in the following ways:
CaSS aims to provide reliable sources of information and helpful access to a network of partners (connecting).
CaSS meets with individuals, groups, church leaders etc. across the city and offers ideas, support, advice, an extra pair of hands and prayer in order to stimulate church - school links (encouraging).
CaSS provides resources & training to help meet the needs of Christians working with schools (resourcing).
The work of CaSS is unique within the city. CaSS has served schools since 1985 and during that time school life and the experiences and challenges young people face have altered. It is now estimated 95% of children and young people have no meaningful contact with a church. A church with a heart to serve the next generation, therefore, needs to connect with a school.
It may help you to understand the mission of CaSS in the city if you imagine CaSS as an armour bearer. An armour bearer was chosen by kings and generals (connect) to bear their armour (resource) and to stand by them in the time of danger (encourage).
CaSS is an interdenominational Sheffield charity that has been working in Sheffield since 1985. If you would like to donate to the work of CaSS please visit the Donate page. Thank you.
