Faith Communities Directory for Hertfordshire 2017-18 Jun 2017

This directory has been compiled with the help of the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) in Hertfordshire. Members of the faith groups in Hertfordshire are keen to support schools in their implementation of the new Agreed Syllabus of Religious Education. To this end, those listed are able and willing to visit schools to talk to groups of pupils about their faith. Some may be willing to speak in assemblies and other larger gatherings. We have also listed the main place(s) of worship for the 6 principal faiths in Hertfordshire.

We intend to update this directory regularly and hope to increase the number of entries. Please let us know if you use a speaker who is not on this list whom you are prepared to recommend.

The Directory is available from within Hertfordshire Schools only.

The document helps teachers encourage pupils to reflect on their own beliefs and values whilst acknowledging that others may hold beliefs different to their own.
