About Us

Christians Learning Across Yorkshire was a group of training/education officers, from various church denominations that are members of Churches Together in England, who sought to:

  • Promote a culture of lifelong learning in God’s church.
  • Promote the unity of God’s church by working together to resource Christians for discipleship, mission and ministry, whilst recognising that some learning is denominationally specific.
  • Enhance learning by bringing diverse traditions side by side, as we seek common ground to share and strengths to celebrate.

CLAY ceased to be active in November 2018, when the Yorkshire Regional Partnership, with whose Education for Discipleship practitioner group CLAY had been closely allied for the previous two years, was replaced by a looser association of church educators, the Network of Yorkshire Learning Practitioners (NYLP), which can be contacted through its Chair, Siggy Parratt-Halbert of the Methodist Church Yorkshire + region.
