RFF Women’s Interfaith Workshop 11 September 2014
“Faith and Fasting: what is it about?”
On Thursday 11th September 2014, around twenty women – some new, some regular attenders- came together in St Alban’s Church, Ilford, for an afternoon of learning and exchange on the topic of faith and fasting. They were sustained with a delicious cream tea. This was the first of the Redbridge Faith Forum’s Interfaith Women’s Workshop for what promises to be an interesting and varied autumn season. The general consensus among everyone who attended the workshop, was that all had learned something of value and had come away with a better understanding of various faiths and cultures, including their own. Many women commented on the atmosphere of friendship and respect for each other.

On Tuesday 23rd September 2014, seventy five people- members and friends of Redbridge Faith Forum (RFF), celebrated United Nations Day of Peace by gathering for a dinner party at Saravanaa Bhavan, a vegetarian restaurant in Ilford. This RFF event was a great opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones, to get to know RFF management committee and of course, to support Redbridge Faith Forum. The evening provided an ideal opportunity for guests to sample a delicious array of South Indian delicacies including a wonderful Kulfi (Indian frozen milk sweet) for dessert. Best of all was the convivial atmosphere around the tables, with old friends greeting and catching up with one another and new acquaintances being formed amidst chatter and laughter. A truly warm and convivial atmosphere was the order of the day among the guests of all faith and none. On the 23rd September, in that restaurant, diversity ruled and enriched everyone’s life, turning this gathering into a lesson in harmonious community living, a fitting celebration for a Peace Day.
