Impact young lives with the good news of Jesus.

Hunter SRE is a group of individuals who are actively involved in local Christian churches and represent a variety of denominations around Newcastle and the Hunter region. Together, they are committed to encouraging and training SRE Teachers so that SRE classes can be taught in any public school that requests SRE lessons.

NSW Government schools have had a policy for providing religious education since 1880. Special Religious Education (SRE) is available for any child to attend, at their parent’s choice.
