Who are the Occasional Belongers?
This recent seminar led by Dr Ann Casson draws upon some key findings from the Faith in the Nexus report that considers the diversity of expression and understanding associated with a sense of belonging and connection. The main Nexus report found that where a strong, active relationship between church and school was perceived, then there was more evidence of faith-related activities at home. In this seminar, Dr Ann Casson considers:
- The different ways in which people belong to church.
- The value individuals place on this connection with church.
- Different in kind, not strength of belonging.
- The importance of recognising where people are and acknowledging that perhaps for many that is where they want to stay.
