Y10 RS Students Explore Christianity In Liverpool

Our Year 10 Religious Studies students journeyed to Liverpool to visit both Cathedrals and learn more about what Christian worship is like in practice.

After studying Christian beliefs, teachings and practices as part of their Religious Studies GCSE, they had an opportunity to explore two religious buildings and discuss Christianity with expert tour guides.

The first stop was Liverpool Cathedral, where our students split into groups to tour the building and learn about its history. During the tour, they explored key features of the cathedral, which are significant to Christian worship – including the font, where they discussed baptism, religious paintings and stained glass windows, where they discussed the importance of religious art in sharing stories, and the Chapter House, where they found out about the leadership structure of the Church of England.

After a lunch break, and a browse in the Cathedral shop, our students moved onto the second stop: Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral (of Christ the King) to see how Catholic worship compared to Anglican worship. After a steep climb up to the doors, our students investigated the more modern building and consolidated their understanding of Christian worship, as well as their ability to compare and contrast different practices.

Ms Dowell, who organised the trip, said: “Our students represented themselves and the school very well – they got involved in the activities, they answered questions, and they showed a natural curiosity for Religious Studies through asking brilliant questions, too. One tour guide even said that they were his favourite group to date!”.

Year 10 have now moved on to studying Islamic beliefs, and will be visiting Manchester Central Mosque in April.
