8.3.18 a celebration of International Women’s Day

A group of 12 women enjoyed a very interesting and informative walk around Bow to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Led by Registered Tour Guide Eli Bloom we heard inspirational stories from the lives of influential women who worked selflessly to promote social justice in their lifetimes.

We heard about political pioneers, philanthropists, suffragettes and social reformers all associated with Bow in the East End and were able to view the buildings and monuments they were associated with.

The walk ended at Unity community cafe at the Bromley by Bow centre where coincidentally a very well attended event was taking place also celebrating International Women’s Day!  We were all grateful to enjoy some warming soup and have the chance to chat informally and form new friendships.

Redbridge Faith Forum would like to thank Eli for giving so freely of her time to give us a wonderful morning and the opportunity to raise some funds for the charity.  Eli has a website www.londonatyourfeet.com and can offer a range of walks to groups.

A report is available here.

Women’s Interfaith Workshop 28.2.18

We were glad to give a warm welcome to the women who made it through the snow and the bitterly cold wind to join us in St Andrews Church Hall on Wednesday 28th February for our workshop taking  continuing our theme of “Weddings: – Ceremony, Custom & Tradition”

Having heard about Baha’i, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish and Sikh wedding customs in other, recent workshops, this workshop was the last in this very interesting and stimulating series.  We heard from Christian and Muslim speakers about Christian and Muslim wedding ceremonies, customs and traditions .

It proved to be a very informative and enjoyable afternoon with plenty of informal discussion around the topics raised.  A report will be available here in due course.

Our women’s workshops are free to attend, and are generally very informal with plenty of opportunity for discussion, questions & answers in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

Please click here for the flyer.
