Join us to celebrate Kirklees Interfaith Week, Sunday 16th -22nd of November 2014
National Interfaith Week in Kirklees 2014!
For the sixth year, Kirklees Faiths Forum will be running Interfaith Week in Kirklees and have planned exciting events in partnership with schools, voluntary organisations, statutory organisations an local residents from across Kirklees.
Up and down the country events are being held to strengthen interfaith relations and increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK.
This year’s Interfaith Week in Kirklees will be launched at the Clerics’ Supper gathering between Muslim and Christian faithleaders. Events during the week will include Kirklees Faiths Forum’s Annual General Meeting & Celebration Evening, hands-on-faith workshops (Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Christian, and Sikh) which this year commemorate the centenary of the First World War, when we learn how people of different faiths contributed, and the effects of war.
Have your chance to discuss faith and conscientious objectors at our Focus on Faith lecture with our faith panel and, author Cyril Pearce, who has written Comrades in Conscience – The story of an English community’s opposition to the Great War.
Help support Kirklees Faith Forum’s ‘Pledge a Pound and Bring a Tin’ appeal which this year is supporting local food banks and the Cities of Service ‘Out and About’ initiative, tackling the problem of loneliness in the Kirklees older population.
Good Neighbour Awards 2014 This year Kirklees Faiths Forum are seeking to identify individuals who embody the spirit of neighbours helping neighbours. We aim to recognise those who are making a difference in our community and who do not typically seek or receive recognition for their efforts. If you would like to nominate a good neighbour, please contact the office for a copy of the nomination form and details (deadline for entries Friday 31 October).
Events are taking place in North and South Kirklees. All events are free, so why not come along and make new friendships whilst learning a bit more about your local faith communities!
