UN Interfaith Harmony Week 2013

To Mark the UN Interfaith Harmony Week 2013, Woking People of Faith, Surrey Faith Links and the Bishop of Guildford's Christian-Muslim Forum gathered people of all faiths to encourage inter-faith cooperation.  The Shah Jahan mosque kindly hosted the event for 50 people who listened to local examples of local cooperation between people of different faiths for the good of the wider community.  Guests were invited to meet with one another and to share good ideas about local engagement.   The meeting also heard a report on the activities of four 'action' groups which emerged from a similar meeting in 2012. 

Comments from those who attended include the following:

'Brilliant, Our group had a real diversity of faiths - Christian, Muslim, Hindu - gut good networking and discussion on how to work together. There was interest in 'Friendship groups' being set up as well as 'Social Action'. 

'Good Atmosphere: great to hear stories of what works.'

'As a new-comer I found it a worthwhile experience, particularly meeting new people.'

'Constructive, pro-active, productive. Well done'.
