Learning Resources

The Faith Encounters Programme and the Arts Society Birmingham have collaborated to produce a suite of resources for schools and families. Supported by a generous grant from Westhill Endowment Trust, the resources are designed to enhance a school visit, or support a virtual visit for children between the ages of 8-13. The resources encourage children to be curious and reflective by focusing on the imagery, heritage and culture present in six different places of worship in the city. Pupils are encouraged to see similarities and to celebrate differences. Resources can be downloaded here. Others can be found below:
