Women’s Interfaith Workshop Feasts Festivals & Holy Days

On 12th November the Women’s Group met at the Singh Sabha London East Gurdwara, in Seven Kings. Parminder Kaur Kondral and a group of Sikh women gave a warm welcome and introduced the main topic for the session ‘Feasts, Festivals and Holy Days ~ What do we celebrate?’ by telling the group of the main Sikh Festivals.  Women from different faiths then spoke with enthusiasm about some of their major faith festivals and celebrations. This addressed many misconceptions about which were the major festivals and what was also a cultural tradition but not necessarily a religious teaching. Our generous hosts fed us well with pakoras, biscuits and tea as well as inviting all to join them in the langar for a most welcome vegetarian meal. To view full report click here

Towards Dementia Friendly Faith Communities

Redbridge Faith Forum (RFF) is organising five repeat, dementia awareness raising sessions at different faith community venues entitled “towards dementia friendly faith communities”. Dementia can affect anybody regardless of faith, gender, age or any other background. Sessions are open to all who wish to attend wherever it takes, whether they belong to the faith group of the venue, to another faith group or none. Alli Anthony of the Alzheimer’s Society, who so compellingly put the case for better care of dementia sufferers and the people who look after them on the occasion of our Women’s day Open Forum in March, will lead again.

A poster advertising the event and giving the dates, times and venues for the sessions is available here.
