The Faith Encounter Programme in Birmingham

The Faith Encounter Programme in Birmingham

The Faith Encounter Programme is based in Birmingham. It is a multi-faith group working to develop mutual respect and understanding between people of all faiths and none in the West Midlands. They have pioneered the development of an accredited Faith Guiding Course in partnership with the Institute of Tourist Guiding. The Faith Guiding Certificate has been accredited by the Institute of Tourist Guiding at Level 2. The course offers a guiding qualification for a specific place of worship, with emphasis on the presentation and interpretation of the faith. Faith Guides also have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of their own faith and of other faiths.

We are a multi-faith group working to develop mutual respect and understanding between people of all faiths and none in the West Midlands. We have pioneered the development of an accredited Faith Guiding Course in partnership with the Institute of Tourist Guiding.

We are a charity that works in partnership with the West Midlands Faiths Forum and Birmingham SACRE to offer quality visits to places of worship of all faiths, for school groups. We also offer training programmes and workshops in faith literacy. These can be tailor made for professional bodies and companies, schools, colleges and community groups“.

 You can download two presentations given by Ruth Tetlow at two CTA conferences about the development of this Faith Guiding training.
