Faces of Faith is a brand new film resource to support the teaching of the Christian faith at Key Stage One and Two.
It includes 23 clips of children aged 5-7 and 7-11 talking about their Christian faith, on-line and ready to be used by schools.
Through the interactive use of age-appropriate video clips in their classroom, pupils in primary schools across the country can now see and hear a wide range of 21st century Christian children talk about their shared beliefs. The clips will support pupils' understanding and knowledge of the Christian faith. The on-line films will support hard-pressed practitioners in teaching about the Christian faith in a stimulating, child-friendly way; bringing the voice of real believers into every classroom.
Children were filmed from the following churches:
All Saints Church of England, Forest Gate, London
Highway Church, Stratford, London
Christ Church, United Reform Church, Upton Park, London
Pilgrims' Hall Congregational and Methodist Church, East Ham, London
City Chapel, Beckton, London
Bonny Downs Baptist Church, East Ham, London
Our lady of Compassion Catholic Church, Upton Park, London
Salvation Army Church, Stratford, London
Funded by the Jerusalem Trust and Transform Newham, Faces of Faith is an outstanding national resource that will support the teaching of Christianity within Religious Education. It reveals, through the words of children, the many things Christians share amidst the diversity found in Christian communities.
