What is the Point of Religious Education Today?

Hosted by: Ed Pawson

Ed Pawson is Head of Religion, Philosophy and Ethics at the King’s School, Ottery St Mary, where he teaches students aged 11-18.  He is an RE adviser in Devon schools and the Chair of the National Association of Teachers of RE (NATRE).

What is the rationale for the teaching of RE in our schools today?  Why does it continue to be a relevant subject within the school curriculum?  What challenges do teachers of RE face in twenty-first century?

Everyone is warmly welcomed to the St Michael’s Lectures and admission is FREE (with a voluntary retiring collection).  They are followed by discussion and light refreshments.  For further information, or to discuss disabled access, contact David Beadle at dnb201@ex.ac.uk
