Awareness of faiths and cultures
Staff from a cross-section of Local Solutions’ services took part in a two-day Faith Diversity training course in January 2008.
Liverpool Community Spirit, a community based charity, delivered the course which provided an introduction to different faiths and cultures in Merseyside.
Participants of the course learnt about the central beliefs, practices and world views of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism and enjoyed visits to a local Synagogue and Mosque. Members of the group also had the opportunity to put questions to representatives of the faith communities.
A range of food and drink associated with each culture was also sampled throughout, along with mantras and meditation.
Special thanks to Liverpool Community Spirit for co-ordinating all aspects of the course.
