The mission and work of The Salvation Army fundamentally places its officers, employees and officers in direct contact with people from different cultures and religions. This course aims to provide you with the necessary knowledge and expertise to be able to work with people from different backgrounds, cultures and religions from your own. This course provides a basic overview of the major cultural and religious groups within the United Kingdom and encourages attendees to place the skills learnt within their own context. It will deepen your understanding of spirituality and what it means to be a person within the specifically Christian context of The Salvation Army.
This course is currently provided regionally as required.
