Conference on models of cooperation between church and mosque

It was a good conference on models of cooperation between the Church and Mosque. Both Christian priests and muslim Imams shared concrete experiences in working together for teaching in Danish schools through the program Din tro, min tro (Your faith, my faith), in the common effort of acquiring cemetery for the muslims in the area, in the work for cross-cultural women and children. Voices from Odense, Ikast, Esbjerg and Haderslev were shared. Bishop Marianne and and Imam Memet Durmus from Herning took up the question what we could achieve in working together. Concrete cases were shared, and group sessions spent time reflecting after presentations. 49 participants all in all!


Painting Course

We had a painting class at Munkevængets skole with Helle Noer. 30 participants- children and adults showed up. Products of the course are now exhibited in the hallway of Simon Peters Church.

Art Course on Symbols in Religion

A course on Art, symbols in religions will be offered by the cross-cultural office on the 16th and 25th of March. This is an offer to all children or adults who want to draw or paint, while at the same time, seeking to understand meaning of different signs and symbols. Art is taken as a bridge to common understanding and affirmations.

The course  will give  participants the chance to talk about the meaning of symbols which are found in different religions and the possibility to draw and paint with canvass and acryl. One can also choose which material one will use to express images, conveying values and thoughts in religions.

The course will be held at Munkevængets Skole, Billedkunstlokale, Blok C at 15.00-18.00 p.m. The school is just behind Simon Peters Kirke. One can reach the area by taking bus number 1 or number 2.

Sprogcafe Launched

The Language Cafe opened last Thursday, the 25th of November in Simon Peters Church. There were three volunteers who came and four students, representing countries of origin like China, Iran, USA and the Philippines.

 Within one and a half hours, the group was able to learn each other's names and proceeded to one to one encounter over a cup of tea or coffee. The office laid a guideline for the volunteers in taking up personal matters to talk about like description of one's self, family, things one likes, Denmark, description of one's own country  and learning new vocabulary words, while giving attention to the questions that each student may raise or may need to be helped.  

Language Cafe is every Thursday in a week in Simon Peters Church at 3 - to 4.30 pm. Please spread the news to others who may benefit from this activity-

     U  P  D A T E  ......January 21, 2011

The Language Encounter activity has been going on from the month of November without stop. For now we have four volunteers who have regularly given their time for this program, sharing their willingness to support those who are willing to practice and improve their Danish language.

So far the program has witnessed the following persons who have availed of this offer: 1 Chinese, 3 Filipinos, 1 American, 1 Sudanese, 1 Hungarian, 1 Iranian.

We know that any starting program takes time to be on full swing. We do need help of churches and friends to dessiminate information on this language service. It is possible that we can further offer English in the near future. This is just depending on the need that will be expressed to us.
