The Shap Working Party on World Religions in Education was set up in 1969 to broaden the basis of education at all levels by encouraging the study and teaching of world religions. It seeks to achieve its aim by producing accurate information and resources for those involved with religious education and religious studies.
Members come from a variety of religious backgrounds and represent experts from all fields of education, school, college and university. The publications we produce are widely regarded by schools, industry, politicians and social services as the authoritative texts in the field of world religions.
Contributions to RE
Shap members produce, in different formats, an annual calendar detailing the festival dates of many of the religions of the world. These include a printed A3 Wallchart, an eCalendar featuring dates and descriptions of some 200 festivals, and an annual collection of photographs produced by David Rose. Together this constitutes an invaluable resource for the teaching profession, students, businesses, chaplaincies, those in health care and public services.
