Dear God...
“The ocean is like God and raindrops are the religion. When they fall into the ocean they become one.”

The Ladywood Interfaith
Education Project (LIEP)

The Ladywood Interfaith Education Project (LIEP) is based in inner-city Birmingham. Initiated by St John & St Peter’s Parish Church, it is a partnership between four local places of faith since 1999, involving creative educational encounters for classes of school children.

Our aims are to:
  • Nurture understanding and celebration of different faiths and beliefs among school children.
  • Building on the partnerships of the communities of the four sacred spaces.
  • Create opportunities for children to explore something of their personal spirituality.
  • Enhance Religious Education syllabus of the schools involved.
Each faith is explored in its own sacred building by volunteer professional teachers and volunteer professional artists of that faith. Teaching and workshops include story, drama, art, music and appreciation of sacred space.
Classes visit one or two of the sacred places on a visit, exploring themes chosen by their schools in accordance with their RE Syllabus.
