To celebrate Interfaith Week, the Multi Faith Centre and our partners hosted two special events to mark the occasion. An urban walk around several sacred places of worship associated with our city's diverse communities and an innovative student led project.
On Saturday 12th of November, we gathered with people of faith and no faith and embarked on an Interfaith walk visiting different faith centres in the community. We visited the New Life Church, Jamia Mosque, Guru Arjan Dev Ji Gurdwara, Geeta Bhawan Hindu Temple and followed by lunch at the Pakastani Community Centre. At each venue, we received a warm welcome and hospitality, learned more about the city's diverse faiths and gained an insight into the valuable role that each place of worship plays in their neighbourhoods.
The inspiring morning was a fantastic opportunity for everyone to walk and talk, make inter faith connections for community harmony, spark new friendships, increase mutual understanding and enrich their own spiritual journeys.
Venues: New Life Church, Jamia Mosque, Guru Arjan Dev Ji Gurdwara, Geeta Bhawan Hindu Temple, Pakistani Community Centre.
