Whisper provides school visitors drawn from multiple religions who tell children about their faith in support of the RE curriculum. It's great for the children to have a real encounter with an authentic person of faith! Visitors answer children's questions about their personal experience, and often give presentations about their faith, tell stories from their scriptures and explain artefacts and festivals.
The visits are coordinated by Wendy, who also runs the interview and training process and can organise lifts for non-drivers if needed. To enquire about a visit for your school in the Welwyn, Hatfield, or St Albans area, or to enquire about volunteering with the project, please contact Wendy on 07904 517384 firstname.lastname@example.org
Whisper is sponsored by the United Reformed Church, Welwyn Hatfield InterFaith Group (see whifg.co.uk), Herts County SACRE (Standing Advisory Committee for Religious Education) and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council.
