Schools and Companion Links
RE with Soul, developed in partnership with schools, churches and ALMA, the Diocese of London’s Companion Link, offers schools and churches throughout the UK a practical model and resources for working together with their own overseas Companion Links to enrich Global RE, Character Education and Citizenship potential. ALMA’s overseas links are with Mozambican and Angolan churches and communities.
These resources are designed to nourish relationships and release the learning potential within these three way partnerships, in creative ways that can be motivating and transforming for all involved. The RE with Soul resources are designed to be adapted for use by a school or church in any Diocese, to complement the Understanding Christianity and Global Neighbours resources as well as support a school in meeting SIAMS criteria.

School to School Overseas Partnerships
RE with Soul has initiated numerous successful exchange partnerships between schools and churches both locally and globally through ALMA. Engagement with overseas neighbours, sharing lives and learning, enabled school to school partnerships, and supported by RE with Soul resources, have enabled lasting and transforming friendships to be formed, that inspire positive action relating to beliefs, identity and belonging.
