Faith Communities Join together at Interfaith Meal – 12th May 2015
Around 75 people from many faiths and none, attended the Redbridge Faith Forum (RFF) Annual Interfaith Meal on Tuesday, 12th May. The event, hosted by the Guru Nanak Satsang Sabha Karamsar (The Old Courthouse), was held in the presence of The Worshipful Mayor and Mayoress of Redbridge, Councillor Ashley Kissin and Mrs. Hilary Kissin.
The evening started with an introduction from RFF Chair, Jacquie Grieve, who gave a short update on the work of the Redbridge Faith Forum and how it has helped so many groups and individuals reach a better mutual understanding and respect of the various faith traditions represented. In response, Mayor Cllr. Kissin, said that this was one of his last official duties as Mayor and that is was a great pleasure to be invited to such an occasion.
The evening gave all a welcome opportunity to meet with others from different traditions in a friendly social atmosphere. Volunteers from the RFF held a prize draw where everyone won a prize. The event has also raised additional funds to support the ongoing work of the Redbridge Faith Forum. The superb vegetarian meal was supplied by the friendly and helpful staff of the Karamsar Centre.
During the evening the guests also heard a presentation from the Liberty Credit Union who explained how they help local people who are caught in the trap of extortionate interest rates.
The Mayor and Mayoress spent a good deal of time circulating and speaking with the guests.
RFF Chair, Jacquie Grieve, concluded the evening with a short and very amusing poetry recital.
A full programme of future events, including our forthcoming AGM on Thursday evening 11th June is available from our offices.
