Task 1
Research a religion or thought system that we have not covered before.

Some suggestions might be Sikhism, New Age Philosophy, Wiccan, Rastafarianism, the Aboriginal Dreamtime or Native American thought.

Task 2
 You are going to find out what people you are close to think about faith.


Design a questionnaire that will help you find out other people’s ideas about religion and faith.

Task 3A

Create your own religion. Consider:

  •  What is common to most religions?

  • What are the important features of religion? (Is it a meeting place, being part of a group, comfort in times of trouble, festivals and celebrations, a feeling of worth, faith?)

You can create your own belief system that includes any of the features you consider important.

Be as creative as you can, present it on paper and take a picture or type it on the computer.

Task 3B
Consider this statement: “You do not need to be part of a Religious group to have faith”

How far do you agree with this? (At least 3 paragraphs with a conclusion).
