Welcome to The Apollos Trust
The Trust’s core aim is to provide Christian support within Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre, Tenterden and at The Marsh Academy, New Romney.
The project grew out of the need for rural churches seeking ways to support their young people in their parishes as they move from small local primary schools to one of the large secondary schools. At this important stage in their life, many young people lose contact with their local church whose reach is normally limited to their primary school.
Many Churches have come together to create this imaginative project to fund Christian schools workers whose role is to provide ministry to these young people and the staff; building on the foundations laid at primary school, and to enable the development of their faith in an age-appropriate manner. Many of the communities that feed into Homewood School and The Marsh Academy are small and remote, and one of the best places to provide Christian support for them is through their school.
The project is the result of a strong ecumenical partnership between Anglican and Free churches within the catchment area of Homewood School in Tenterden, The Marsh Academy in New Romney and support of the Diocese of Canterbury. We can only sustain this ministry with your support, please remember the Trust in your prayer and consider supporting financially. Please see our donations page, and come to one of public meetings.
Both Homewood and the Marsh Academy are inclusive secular secondary schools in which students of all faiths or none are welcomed and nurtured.
