St Albans Cathedral’s Religious Education activities for Secondary Year students.

The Cathedral is used as a place of Christian worship every day of the year, but why was it built, how is it used and what do Christians believe? St Albans Cathedral as a Place of Worship trail explore these questions and more in an interactive and engaging way. At Christmas and Easter they also run seasonal activities to explore these major Christian festivals.

They can also organise sessions based on Religion and Ethics, which can include a Q&A with a member of the Cathedral clergy.

To accompany these activities, they also run a number of art and craft workshops, including Clay Tiles and Brass Rubbing.

Most schools combine two activities, usually a trail and a workshop, to make a whole day of their visit. Trails include drama and artefacts to help pupils develop their learning, whilst workshops allow them to create a piece of artwork to take home at the end of the visit.
