Understanding Christianity Day 3 FULL

A set of resources called Understanding Christianity: Text Impact Connections, offers an approach to teaching and learning about Christianity with units of work and supporting resources from EYFS to Year 9. It was launched at Lambeth Palace on 26th May 2016 and has been extremely well received since then with over 95% of Diocesan Schools having completed the training.

Understanding Christianity sets the bar for the quality of teaching and learning about Christianity in our schools and academies. It reinforces the messages we have been giving over the last few years about ‘digging deeper’ and engaging children and young people with the big ideas and concepts of the Christian faith. The teaching approach is one of theological enquiry, and the units of work support both continuity and progression.

The Resources

These include a handbook and units of work as well as a copy of the “Picturing Christianity” pack and a wall frieze showing the “Big Story” of the Bible. The resources will only be available to teachers who attend the training package. This has been stipulated by RE Today to ensure effective implementation.

Understanding Christianity takes place over 3 days. On day one the RE Subject Leaders will receive the resources to support implementation. Following this, participants must attend a Day Two and Day Three Encounter day.  It is not possible to attend days two and three without attendance on Day One. All sessions will take place at the Diocese of Peterborough Education Office, Bouverie Court, Bedford Road, Northampton, NN4 7YD.

Day 1 will be held on Wednesday 3 October 2018 from 9.30am – 3.30pm

Day 2 will be held on Monday 14 January 2019 from 9.30am – 3.30pm

Day 3 will be held on Thursday 2 May 2019 from 9.30am – 3.30pm

The Diocesan Education Offices, Bouverie Court, Unit 1, 6 The Lakes, Bedford Road, Northampton NN4 7YD

Bishop Donald’s Walk and Talk (24 Hour Retreat)

CLERGY ONLY PLEASE

Get some fresh air, enjoy the countryside around the diocesan retreat house - and take the opportunity to ask Bishop Donald any questions you'd like! 

The walk will commence at 10am on the first morning. After lunch, there will be time to talk to Bishop Donald. The rest of the day is free to enjoy the Abbey.

On the next morning, for those who are interested, Chrys Tremththanmor will lead a 'thinking photographer's walk' around the Abbey. Whether you have a SLR or just a camera on your phone, she will show you how to pay attention to your surroundings and take better photos. 

The retreat will finish after lunch. 

If you have mobility issues, please feel free to enjoy the Abbey rather than taking the walk.

Speakers: The Rt Revd Donald Allister was installed as Bishop of Peterborough on 17 April 2010. He is committed to seeing people and churches grow in love and service to Jesus Christ. Revd Chrys Tremththanmor is Training Officer for Peterborough Diocese, and a keen photographer. Her photo website is www.stalkingthelight.com
