Living Faiths in Education – Building Blocks to Greater Understanding
Bishop Grosseteste University College was founded as an Anglican teacher training college and remains one of only a handful of Higher Education Institutions in the UK that has retained its Anglican identity. Our commitment to the role of religion in society is complimented by the courses that we offer in Theology, enabling students to gain strong foundations in theological thinking, whether they are pursuing a career in the teaching of religious education or looking to fulfil other objectives.
Bishop Grosseteste Year 1 Education with Theology Living Faiths in Education module includes a visit to London. Students visit places of worship, museums, galleries and shrines. Last year it included a visit to a Muslim school run by the Dialogue Society, incorporating an evening meal. This was so positive for students that we wish to expand this and make it an established part of the London visit - to be hosted by a religious group with the sharing of a meal together. This will be a pilot project on which we would hope to build, developing links with our local interfaith forum, Lincoln University and a range of faith schools in London.
