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.
