Mission

Church/School partnership mission idea

If your church has a vision to initiate or develop a relationship with a local primary school and is looking for a tool to help, then iSingPOP might be a next step for you.

iSingPOP is a 4 day primary school singing project which gives every child in the school a chance to be on their very own school album. Each mission week is run as a partnership between the school and a local church and serves as a brilliant way to present the Christian message to children, parents and teachers.

iSingPOP projects provide a great opportunity for churches to partner with a local primary school and open their doors to hundreds of members of their local community. The project always results in strengthened relationships between church and school and creates a platform for working together in the future.

Wherever possible, we encourage a member of the church or a family/children’s worker to be a part of the teaching week building relationships with teachers and children.

Having spent a week practicing and recording, the children then perform the songs complete with dance routines in a brilliant uplifting concert in the church for families, teachers and other members of the community. During the concert the church has the opportunity to profile its activities and invite the audience to forthcoming services or events.

The songs are extremely catchy, fun to learn and are in a current style that the kids love. They are written from a Christian perspective and they tackle important relevant issues such as Love, Prayer, Friendship, Respect, Role Models, Caring for others, Social Justice and Forgiveness

To get a feel for the project, take a look at this film.
