Faith Guiding Course to run online in the autumn

The ‘Faith Encounter Programme’ will run its ‘Faith Guiding Course’ online over six Tuesday evenings in September and October. The training course  aims to train ‘Faith Guides’ from different faith backgrounds to lead high-quality educational visits to different places of worship. Since 2007, the ‘Faith Encounter Programme’ has trained over 140 Faith Guides from eight different faith backgrounds.

The ‘Faith Encounter Programme’ is an independent group, which was set up to promote religious harmony and social cohesion for the benefit of the public. Over the years, the FEP’s extensive knowledge of the faith sector, and involvement with a wide range of faith-inspired organisations, has resulted in a collaborative engagement with diverse faith communities in Birmingham and the midlands.

Due to Covid-19, this year’s Faith Guiding Course will be delivered through six virtual, two-hour Zoom sessions. The sessions will take place from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Tuesdays 15, 22 and 29 September, and 6, 13 and 20 October. Each session will consist of three components:

+ Learning about your own faith

+ Learning about other faiths and interfaith relations

+ Acquiring guiding skills to present your own faith

The cost of the six-week course is £25. Applications are open until the end of August. To find out more, visit this FACEBOOK PAGE and applications should be submitted to this
