Schools and churches within the Diocese of London have been enriched through Angola London Mozambique Association (ALMA) by relationships with partners in Mozambique and Angola, in the context of RE and Global citizenship learning.
Through dialogue, confronting shared challenges, and working together, ALMA has helped school and church partners across London encounter each other, become friends, and grow in empathy and mutual understanding. This applies equally to Church of England Schools, Community Schools and Academies.
Opportunities exist throughout the UK for schools and their local churches to partner in engaging with their Companion Links. Pupils learn through building relationships with churches and communities locally and globally:
ALMA’s RE with Soul resources offer schools and churches across the Diocese of London and beyond, ways to harness Diocesan Companion Links to support the enrichment of:
- RE teaching and learning in ways that complement the Understanding Christianity resources
- Character education, ethos and citizenship linked to SIAMS criteria and Global Neighbours
