FISS or Faith in Scarborough Schools is Christian charity which is local (would you believe) to Scarborough - that is Scarborough North Yorkshire UK. FISS is our working title. Our official charity title is "Scarborough Schools Christian Worker Trust". You can find us by searching here. Our Office is situated at St james Arts Centre Seamer Road. I am called Bruce Clark and have been running FISS for quite some time (15 years?!).
FISS has 5 Trustees and is supported by most of the local churches either collectively or representatively. We are part of the Churches Together in Scarborough Committee and regard ourselves as under its oversight.
The aim of FISS is to communicate the Christian faith in ways that young people and children will appreciate. Where are we most likely to find them - in Church? No. In Schools! Furthermore the Educational Reform Act of 1998 stipulates that religious education should be wholly or mainly of a broad Christian character. This means we have an open door into schools to share wisely and sensitively the Christian faith.
