We Can Talk – understanding sectarianism and racism

Friday September 3rd 2010

An opportunity is available for individuals and groups to participate in the We Can Talk programme funded by the CAN Peace III Faith Communities Programme.

We Can Talk is part of the Connecting Faith and Community Progamme and is aimed at equipping the local church to understand sectarianism and racism. It is now being delivered to church/faith groups in the Carrickfergus, Antrim and Newtownabbey areas.

For individuals, the course aims to provide participants from faith based organisations with a safe space to meet over a period of time to get to know each other and explore these issues together.

Over 14 sessions the course will explore a number of themes including stereotypes, sectarianism and developing good practice.

We Can Talk also offers creative workshops for church groups. A team of facilitators is available, free of charge to run these workshops for any faith based group including bible study groups, women’s groups and men’s fellowship groups.

The workshops will explore issues such as racism and sectarianism in an interesting and enjoyable way.
