This one-day of training is designed for anyone wanting to learn how to interact well with faith practitioners among colleagues or clients at work or with faith communities around them. Training can occur at a venue of your choice or in conjunction with the Kings Centre in Southall, where excellent relationships with local faith leaders enables short tours to Christian, Hindu, Muslim and Sikh places of worship.
Frequently Asked Questions
The training strength comes from its customisation for your own organisational needs, hearing faith stories in fields such as:
- finance (purpose of work, views on money and its role in society)
- health (views on wellbeing and the role of the body)
- environment (views on creation and its stewardship)
Participants become more appreciative of the positive (and often unheard) role of faith communities within wider society, and will develop skills to interact well with them, with opportunities to apply learning on the day through engagement with practitioners.
Debriefing on implications for future working practice then occurs afterwards, prior to departure.
If your interest is in a different faith, then please ask us about it since other faith connections also exist.
Additionally, Cultural Awareness Training can be added within the day to highlight cultural aspects associated with that faith group.
This could be as an opportunity to build relations with a local faith group and to approach them about hosting a visit as part of this training. Please contact us for help on how to do this.
Otherwise training can occur in conjunction with the Kings Centre in Southall, facilitated by excellent relationships with local faith leaders.
If only one faith is in focus, then training can be completed within a half-day or can be combined with Cultural Awareness Training to create one-day of learning about cultural aspects of a particular faith group.
If pricing is a problem for you, other alternatives can also be considered. We passionately believe in the importance of this learning and we want as many people as possible to benefit. Pricing is set though to make future training sustainable, considering wider costs such as content development and publicity.
