The Cambridge Inter-faith Programme Summer School 2013
12-30 August 2013, Madingley Hall, University of Cambridge
Calling emerging religious leaders around the world – in August 2013, the Cambridge Inter-faith Programme will bring together an international group from Islamic, Christian and Jewish backgrounds, for three-weeks of immersion in inter-faith education and encounter. Students benefit from a series of lectures delivered by specialist academics and peacemakers from around the world; they are given training in the practice ofinter-faith Scriptural Reasoning, and are facilitated through a process of teaching one another about aspects of their traditions. The Summer School also includes visits to religious communities around the UK. Most importantly, participants benefit from opportunities to get to know and learn from their fellow participants, who come from a wide variety of countries; relationships which last well beyond the Summer School itself.
All the costs of tuition, accommodation, on-site meals, activities and visits will be covered by the Cambridge Inter-faith Programme. Students will be asked to pay a deposit of £250 – refundable at the end of the Summer School – and will need to source their own funds to cover their travel to and from Cambridge.
The Summer School is intended for people who are working towards a position of leadership, particularly in a religious context. This could mean that you are a student, or are in training for religious leadership or ministry of any kind. It could mean that you already have a formal or informal leadership position in your community. Or it could mean that you hope to have a position of leadership in your community in the future. The Summer School will be particularly appropriate for students at the later stages of undergraduate-level study, or the early stages of graduate-level study, or in the early stages of active leadership or ministry. Applicants should have an interest in inter-faith engagement, but they do not need any prior inter-faith experience.
Applications are due by Friday 1st February 2013.
