Interfaith Week

Interfaith Week 


In November, the children at St Laurence Church Junior School took part in Interfaith Week.

It was a fabulous opportunity to bring people in our community closer together and build positive relationships.


During the motivational week, the children in school learned about religions and beliefs in our local area.

We met a variety of visitors, looked at religious buildings, learnt about festivals, held a Diwali dance workshop and looked at different views people of religion or people of no faith may hold.

We held an  exhibition of our work and invited members of our local community to share their thoughts about faith with us over a cup of coffee!


Everyone has different beliefs;

we can learn to educate ourselves about different beliefs and respect other people’s views and opinions.

We are all different, believe different things, like different things and it's important to celebrate our differences.




Comments from our visitors about our Interfaith Exhibition


Great exhibition of unity and peace despite our diverse religious beliefs.


It is so good to have us visit the school today for a lovely exhibition of this kind. Keep up the good work.


Lovely to see all the hard work that the children have prepared. It is very interesting. All the children I spoke to were very friendly and knowledgeable.


Lovely to see such a well thought out exhibition, and the children have obviously worked very hard. The dancing was wonderful.


 All the children were really good, helping detail the work and answering lots of questions.


It has been wonderful to see all of the fantastic work and to hear from the pupils - a credit to the school.


Seth, Lillie and Mikail taught me about Humanism. I found it very interesting. I had never heard of it before so I will research it further when I get home.


Wonderful dancing! All the children were so knowledgeable.


Great to see all the hard work the students have put into understanding different faiths.


What a wonderful exhibition! The children have been amazing and very confident.


Really welcoming and confident students - brilliant!

A prayer for our community


Creator God,

We thank you for the amazing diversity of your creation.
So much life, expressed in different forms, living in a huge variety of ways.
We thank you that this diversity is expressed in human life, people all made in your image, yet living, believing and hoping in different ways.
Many gather together, expressing shared beliefs, as part of faith communities.

In the richness of your creative diversity, we give thanks for faith communities who gather together to express shared beliefs that may be both similar and different to our own.

Help us to step out to meet people of other faiths and beliefs, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord.
