Shortly before Xmas our Year 12 A-Level Religious Studies students have been on a trip into town to drop into various religious buildings, to discuss belief and practice with representatives, and to reflect on the changing use of religious buildings over time.

Initially, students visited St Mary’s Church which is now used as a library rather than a place of worship to consider whether Christianity is as prevalent as it once was.

Subsequently, students visited Lichfield Cathedral to tour the site, ask questions about various aspects of the cathedral and to discuss the importance of Christmas for Christians.

Kelly Gabbitas, Head of Religious Education, said: “We have a range of interesting sites across the city and this was a great opportunity to reflect on the changing face and locations of Christianity.”
