Learning resources

Please feel free to utilise our range of resources to help pupils and young people learn more about our beautiful cathedral!

Faith Visits

Supported by a generous grant from Westhill Endowment Trust, The Arts Society Birmingham has collaborated with six different places of worship, Birmingham Faith Leaders and other organisations to produce resources designed to enhance a school visit, or to support a virtual visit. Please feel free to utilise our downloadable resources and videos below.

Birmingham Cathedral faith visit quiz

Hearts and sounds trail – A beautifully illustrated guide to our cathedral and surrounding churchyard.

Candles in the cathedral – A learning resource suitable for Key Stage 1

Illustrated guides and arts-related activities

These arts-related cross-curricular activities are designed to provide background information for teachers and to complement the RE curriculum for Key Stages 2 and 3.

They provide opportunities to explore the arts in places of worship and to help children to be more curious and reflective. They are deliberately not listed as relevant to a particular religion so that similarities as well as differences between religions may be appreciated.

The activities are grouped in three colour-coded sections:

An introduction to Birmingham Cathedral
Christian Worship
The cathedral and it’s community
Introduction to the Faith Visits project

Divine Beauty resources for schools

Nativity trail – An illustrated guide telling the story of Christmas, in the context of our stained-glass windows
