What to expect

Our visits are taught by lively faith-guides with years of experience with school groups. A visit will give your pupils the opportunity to

  • explore two contrasting places of beauty and peace
  • ask questions and discuss the teachings and way of life of two spiritual communities
  • experience peace through stilling exercises and the lighting of candles
