Christ the King Emmanuel is proud to host the F Word exhibition.
The Forgiveness Project collects and shares stories from individuals and
communities who have rebuilt their lives following hurt and trauma and has been
Founded in 2004 by journalist, Marina Cantacuzino, The Forgiveness
Project provides resources and experiences to help people examine and overcome
their own unresolved grievances. The testimonies we collect bear witness to the
resilience of the human spirit and act as a powerful antidote to narratives of
hate and dehumanisation, presenting alternatives to cycles of conflict,
violence, crime and injustice.
At the heart of The Forgiveness Project is an understanding that
restorative narratives have the power to transform lives; not only supporting
people to move on from harm or trauma, but also building a climate of
tolerance, resilience, hope and empathy.
Christ the King Emmanuel was proud to host a Mercy Love and Forgiveness
conference this week. We were excited to be able to welcome distinguished
speakers Reverend Jonathan Aitken, Lord Alton, Dr Lewis Herrington, Archdeacon
of Hackney Elizabeth Adekunle, Jo Berry and Barry and Margaret Mizen.
This academic conference is part of a series of activities and events
aimed at giving explicit effect to our mission. The conference explored and
embedded key themes which stem from our college motto ‘Ut Vitam Habeant’ (That
they may have life in all its fullness John 10:10), those key themes are Mercy,
Forgiveness and Love.
Current global and local issues such as excesses of materialism,
loneliness, religious persecution, poverty, humanitarian crisis and
environmental concerns are just some of the political, social and economic
questions facing us all. Drawing on gospel values we hope to begin to explore
our spirituality and to examine how Mercy, Forgiveness and Love play a crucial
role in transforming our communities, ourselves and leading us to greater love
for all creation.
This opportunity to listen, engage and reflect would hopefully have
helped to guide leaders of current and future generations to a world that is
unafraid to show mercy, forgiveness and love. It will challenge us all to live
a good life in all its fullness.
On Wednesday 6th February 2019, 27 BTEC Health and Social Care students embarked on a 3 day trip to Disneyland Paris accompanied by three members of staff. All students attended a Health and Social Care international conference related to their modules of study. The Health and Social Care Conference covered modules such as equality and diversity, first aid, diet and nutrition, child Protection and safeguarding, meeting individual needs and health and safety. Students were issued a free one day complimentary entry ticket to the Disneyland parks and Walt Disney studios centre.
Christ the King was delighted to have
twelve students spend the afternoon with Dianne Johnson from Urban Synergy, and
Katherine Chamberlain and Laurence Wolf from Capgemini to learn more about
corporate mentoring and Degree Apprenticeships.
This is the 2nd year that Christ the King students have worked with Urban Synergy and Capgemini and this was the first in a series ofworkshops aimed at helping them to develop life skills as well as introducing them to Degree Apprenticeship opportunities. At the end of the series of workshops, Capgemni hopes to offer a number of Christ the King students a degree apprenticeship.
Christ the King was delighted to run our second, daylong event,
with Unloc Enterprise Academy which was held for
students wanting to consider alternative progression
The Unloc Enterprise Academy programme was designed to inspire,
motivate and develop the mind-sets of young people. The day helped
to develop student’s skills in setting up and testing their own
business ideas as well as exploring future apprenticeship opportunities.
Unloc started in 2011 as a small Portsmouth community project run by Hayden Taylor and Ben Dowling who were young entrepreneurs that wanted to see students getting more engaged with local decision makers. Their aim is to help create a highly capable, actively engaged and civic minded generation of young people.
