Spritual & Religious Education in the Unitarian Faith
Programmes for all ages
Unitarians - children and adults - often participate in religious education programmes which are distinctive, thought-provoking and enjoyable.
Religious education for children is designed to:
- Encourage spiritual awakening and development.
- Build on a child's natural sense of wonder.
- Channel positively the impulse to enquire and create.
- Share stories from our religious inheritance and from other faiths.
Religious education for adults is vital too. Its purpose is to:
- Help you understand and evaluate your own inherited beliefs and values, and those of others.
- Provide a forum for the free and respectful interchange of ideas and insights.
- Help you 'build your own theology' out of the bricks of heritage, experience, intuition and reflection.
- Explore ways in which spiritual values can be applied to life in the world.
Many Unitarian congregations offer religious education programmes, for both young and old. Other educational events are organised at a national or district level; for example, children come together from all over the country to participate in the National Youth Programme. Religious growth and learning are the lifeblood of the Unitarian movement.
