Questions of religious diversity and education will be discussed at a half–day seminar on Inter Faith issues to be held in Saint Thomas’ Church, Eglantine Avenue, Belfast, on Saturday 13 October. The conference entitled “Educating for Understanding” is being organised by the Inter Faith Working Group of the Church of Ireland.
Speakers on the day will include the Rev Dr Inderjit Bhogal (Leader of the Corrymeela Community), Dr. Katy Radford (a Social Anthropologist working at the Institute for Conflict Research and a member of the Executive Council of the Northern Ireland Jewish Community) and Norman Richardson (lecturer in religious education and diversity/intercultural education at Stranmillis University College, Belfast). The seminar will begin with lunch at 1.00pm and finish at 5.30pm.
The Secretary of the Inter Faith Working Group, the Revd Darren McCallig, said, “Our increasingly multi–cultural and multi–religious society raises many challenges and opportunities for us. In particular, those involved in education, both formal and informal, face many unprecedented issues. This half–day seminar will provide a space to address some of the theological, pastoral and practical implications of ‘Educating for Understanding.’”
The cost of the conference (including lunch and tea/coffee) is £20 or €25. Students may attend free of charge. The fee can be paid by cash or cheque on the day but those wishing to attend should register in advance with the Revd Darren McCallig by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone (+3531) 896 1402.
