Faith Direct Event 2017 in Partnership With Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and Northamptonshire Sacres

Celebrate Inter Faith Week 2017 and come to the first Faith Direct event in the east of England.
This event will bring young people from schools across county borders together with expert faith representatives from the region. A “speed dating” format will allow faith representatives to speak about their faith and illustrate it with artefacts for a few minutes, after which students get to ask them any questions about their faith. After ten minutes each group of students will move on to another faith representative, and so on. It should prove to be a lively and rewarding event. All of the major faiths will be represented.
Please note: Lunch will not be provided. Refreshments will be available during the break but students are expected to eat before or after the event. Outside food is not permitted in the venue.
The benefits of attending:
Develop the SMSC provision at your school by having students report back to classes what they experienced
Enthuse students by giving them the opportunity to engage with an expert from a faith directly
Increase student and teacher expertise by asking questions and raising issues not addressed in textbooks or websites
Improve the religious and theological literacy of students as they are introduced to new beliefs and practices
Promote religious understanding in the wider community as students appreciate the commitment of people from different faiths and beliefs
Participate in celebrating the religious diversity of the three counties
