We do what we do because we want to ensure that Religious Education in schools is outstanding, that mission in churches is engaging and effective, that multi-faith encounter is meaningful, challenging and collaborative. We work to ensure that people of all faiths and none can dialogue. That they can learn about each other in a constructive and positive way.
