Christian schools habitually find difficulty in their presentation of their faith position to students. In their eagerness for students to embrace Christian faith, some teachers are inclined to adapt a methodology which is overly didactic and which creates boredom and resentment. This case study reports on an action research approach in one school. It examines how a change in teaching methodology has led to improved student attitudes to Christian faith. The data from the action research have been used to reposition the school's stance towards a more authentic pedagogy and less strident model. Initial evaluations have been encouraging.
