The trip introduced students to a host of religious landmarks in the capital city.
A group of first year Bishop Grosseteste University students recently explored religious sites across London, giving them a unique insight into a variety of faiths.
Nine Theology students spent four days meeting with religious practitioners and learning about their respective institutions and practices. The group were introduced to their beliefs and values, and the speakers were happy to answer any questions the students had.
The sites included Westminster Abbey, Nipponzan Myohoji Peace Pagoda, Swaminarayan Hindu Mission Neasden Temple, ISKCON Centre Radha-Krishna Temple and the National Gallery.
Theology and Education Studies student Lillie-Mae Green said: "These types of trips are great for experience and collecting fieldwork data for assignments. You get to see a new perspective that you couldn't achieve from just studying."
As well as the academic benefits, Lillie-Mae was keen to learn more about different religious practices and cultures. She said: "My highlights for the trip were Radha-Krishna Temple, the Peace Pagoda and Neasden Temple. Each of these sites were amazing visually but also culturally. The people we met at these places were so kind and knowledgeable and even offered us gifts. It was clear how greatly they care for their institutions as well as their faith."
"I've never been on a trip like this before, and getting first-hand experience of different religious institutions was an unforgettable time."
