Students visit Danish bible schoolPosted on: 2nd Mar 2020
During the first week of February SRWA Chaplain, Paul Sanderson, took a group of students to a rural part of Denmark to spend time at a Bible College where young people go to study theology. This was Paul's 11th year of visiting the school to teach social action and every year he takes students along to expose them to different styles of learning, boarding school life and university lectures.
During the trip the group become part of the community and learn lots about Danish culture. Students from all around the world come to the bible school so our students also met other young people from places as far flung as Rwanda and Burundi.
The group also had time to visit Copenhagen, which they thoroughly enjoyed and took part in a traditional Danish 'hygge' evening. Looking at real life social action they also visited a project which provides a home for children whose parent are alcoholics and further projects that supports the homeless and helps trafficked sex workers from Vietnam.
Paul said: "Our students got such a lot out of the trip.They all had an amazing time making new friends, having fantastic experiences and learning about a new culture."
The trip was part of an exchange so we will welcome Danish students here later in the year to share further knowledge and experience.
