The focus may be on religious
community and social life
Looking at buildings, street names and other features, shops and community facilities should help young people develop an understanding of the part played by religion and belief in the area they are exploring.
A trail may help help them gain greater awareness of what “community” can mean; visits often get this across more powerfully than books.
The focus may be on religious community and social life, in contrast to the greater emphasis on spirituality and worship which might be the central point of a visit to a place of worship.
If successful, the visit will help students be more awake to their own environment and more alert to the human factors that have influenced its development.
