Celebration of Faith Diversity in Cornwall

We are able to offer the following workshops:  the Baha’ I, Buddhist, Christian,  Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh and Pagan communities.

Our next primary school event will be on 21st October 2014 at Truro School.

Workshops are aimed at pupils in years 5 and 6 and schools are able to attend a morning session or an afternoon session. Each class of pupils will be split into two groups and both groups will attend four different faith workshops. Each workshop takes 30 minutes.  Our Inter-Faith Development Worker will be able to visit each participating school before the event to prepare the pupils.

The day went extremely well. Similarities and differences between faiths studied quite quickly, ‘real’ people from different religions able to convey their passion or commitment. Overridingly, was the sense of friendship and teamwork

Teacher from Lewannick CP School.

“The day was superbly organised – only wish we could have experienced all of the eight religions on offer as the children were absolutely engrossed – as were the teachers. We learnt many interesting facts about the different religions that we looked at. The workshops gave the children an insight into different beliefs, ceremonies, books, language and clothes.  First hand experience of religions that they might otherwise not come in contact with”
