Formed in 1991 with the objective of providing a high standard of Christian Education in local state high schools, the NCEA now employs Elizabeth Harnwell to work at Hornsby Girls' High School, and Tony Jones to work at Normanhurst Boys' High School. Both are employed on a part-time basis.

The NCEA is administered by a Management Committee representing six local churches and supported by eleven churches in the area (these churches are listed with details on the homepage). The annual budget is approximately $90,000.

We currently use the 'ThinkFaith' curriculum as a learning framework for our students, further information on the curriculum can be found on their website:

Elizabeth Harnwell

Elizabeth Harnwell

Elizabeth Harnwell, a well qualified and experienced teacher, was appointed as a part-time SRE Teacher at Hornsby Girls’ High School (HGHS).

"I feel so thankful to God for the opportunity to teach SRE at HGHS. It has been wonderful to see the girls studying God’s Word and wanting to learn more about Him. I have enjoyed lots of discussions with the girls and answered a lot of questions! Please pray I can continue to build good relationships and continue to teach God’s Word faithfully."
Tony Jones

Tony Jones

Tony Jones has a Bachelor of Science and obtained his Masters of Divinity from SMBC. He is a former student of James Ruse Agricultural High School.

"SRE at Normanhurst is a great opportunity for me to challenge the students about what they believe, and share with them my own belief in Jesus. I hope to continue showing the boys how the Christian worldview is the only one that makes sense of reality, and so shine the light of the gospel into this school. Please pray that I would be a faithful witness in this role."
