Many members of the Group have their own specific research interests in the provision of multi-faith
RE within the UK. However, the principal focus of the group is
practical, with the provision of a number of Resource Centres across the country which house extensive collections
of resources related to RE, Collective Worship, Spirituality & Personal
Development, Contemporary Moral Issues, Citizenship etc. The range of resources provided by individual Centres varies
but will frequently include: multi-faith religious artefacts, books, videos, posters, CD ROMs, cards and other related teacher
support materials. Most Centre resources are available either for loan or purchase. Many Centres also offer local training,
advice and consultancy services within this highly specialist area of education.
In the broadest sense, The Federation of RE Centres has something to offer RE teachers, Church youth workers, those involved in Children's Church programmes, PGCE students, members of a local faith community and individual members of the public interested in the religions of the world. Centres may be part of the local faith community, Education Authority, Diocesan office or inter-faith community.
Further details on resources and services available from individual Centres are listed on the Member Centres pages. Other RE Centres are very welcome to join the Group (contact details are available on the Feedback page).
