Northern Ireland and the border counties

Education for Reconciliation (EfR) is our continuing education programme inNorthern Irelandand the border counties. Courses are held at a variety of locations, reaching 1800 students each year.

The EfR team has been groundbreaking in developing courses that speak to the most pressing needs of the churches and the wider community. Our instructors use an open, interactive classroom style that allows ample opportunity for discussion and for people from different backgrounds to get to know each other.

Past courses have included Women and Peacebuilding, Christ in a World of Many Faiths, and Churches as Communities of Resistance. In 2008 EfR organised a series of six public lectures, ‘The Moral Maze: Ethical Questions and the Shared Future,’ ranging from criminal justice to the churches and the equality agenda.
