Chaplaincy Activities

Understanding Diversity
Whatever your religious faith and beliefs, and even if you are not religious at all, we are inviting you to join in this exciting new venture by the University’s Multi-faith Chaplaincy.
‘Understanding Diversity’ is aimed at promoting mutual learning, understanding and respect amongst people of all faiths and beliefs, as well as those who have no religious adherence.
The procedure used is known as ‘tandem learning’.  Participants choose a faith or belief system which they wish to learn more about and are paired with another participant who wishes to learn more about their faith or beliefs.  The pair arrange to meet a certain number of times – we suggest for a total of 2 to 4 hours.  They choose what areas they would like to talk about and share, but we will offer guidance.  At all times participants show respect for each other’s beliefs and practices and avoid challenging or disputing them.
The Chaplaincy will host an ‘Understanding Diversity Coffee and Cake Meeting’ on October 24th for all participants at the start of the project and an ‘Understanding Diversity Celebration’ at the conclusion on December 5th.
If you would like to take part in this venture please let us know by contacting the chaplaincy chaplaincy@shu.ac.uk before October 12th and we will send you further details.
