*PCFCD are on the move!*
We are very excited to announce that we have now secured a new home and that we will be moving from our current office space in the School Annexe at Salisbury Road to the University Technical College (UTC) on Tuesday 7th February!
With this in mind, our office will be closed on Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th February and we will not be available to answer any phone calls or emails for these 2 days.
On Thursday 9th and Friday 10th February, and for the week commencing 20th February, we will be operating a very limited service and dealing with any urgent issues relating to bookings whilst re-establishing ourselves after the move. We will be closed as normal for the half term week of 13th February.
Welcome to Plymouth Centre for Faiths and Cultural Diversity
Plymouth Centre for Faiths and Cultural Diversity (PCFCD) was established in 2001 and since its inception has successfully created thousands of opportunities for children and young people to meet speakers from a variety of faiths and cultural backgrounds in schools and other settings.
We provide a unique range of services to schools and other organisations including the loan of artefacts and a faith/ culture speaker service. A member of a local faith community can meet with students and staff to explore religious and cultural issues and topics. Schools should see our entry in Trading Fair for further details.
Our meeting room, resources room and hall are also for hire by groups, schools and organisations seeking space for study, discussion or celebration. Lunches can also be provided.
In outline, there are five strands or areas of the Centre’s work:
1. Schools supporting Teaching and Learning in Religious Education and the related Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural and Citizenship curricula.
2. Training/Awareness for local professionals and groups seeking better understanding of the influence of belief, faith and culture in the workplace and across the community.
3. Outreach/networking with local groups and individuals who work in related areas.
4. Programme of Events creating opportunities for interfaith understanding and dialogue.
5. Use of the Centre by Faith groups or others who hold regular or occasional meetings, celebrations and study groups.
