Religious Instruction Month and Events

By Christian RI

Religious Instruction (RI) Month is all of February 2021. Each Church can select a Sunday that they can make their own RI Sunday during the month of February. Christian RI have provided a great bundle of resources (posters, videos, brochures and information kits), which you can access online by clicking here. 

You may be aware that many of the Queensland Christian denominations and dioceses have shown united support of Religious Instruction in our State by forming the Christian RI Alliance in Queensland (CRIAQ).

RI is providing a unique opportunity for well over 175,000 students in Qld State Schools to explore the basic tenets of our Christian faith.

Over 3,300 faithful volunteer RI instructors are supported by their church, a local cooperative of Christian ministers, their local coordinator, a state-wide network (QCRIN) and CRIAQ. These RI Instructors make RI possible every week in our state schools.

Yet, Christian RI does not have enough RI Instructors to meet demand. We need your help in finding more volunteers and raising awareness of RI.

This year we have moved to RI MONTH to give churches the opportunity to choose a weekend in February which suits them to pray for and promote this valuable generational ministry.


Your resource kit can be accessed by clicking on the button:

Read the Information Document in the dropbox first because this tells you everything you need to know about RI month, and provides details of the resources you now have access to.


QCRIN (Queensland Christian RI Network) is excited to announce the details of our back-to-school training program! It is vitally important that every RI Instructor attends training at the start of the new school year so they can be updated about changes and to ensure that everyone can deliver the best RI lessons possible. Even if you have been teaching RI for many decades, please come along and be encouraged. Brand new and potential RI Instructors are especially welcome.

Registration is essential. Please register ASAP as numbers are limited due to COVID.
