Interfaith Week is being held on the 20th – 24th November this year. It is a great opportunity for people of all different beliefs and faiths to come together and celebrate.
To make this week extra special, we have a whole heap of events going on which you can take part in, and you don’t have to be any particular religion to join in. This is a celebration of all faiths, whether you are religious or not. This week is a celebration of how people of different faiths and belief systems can still be respectful of each other – because that’s what makes you guys so awesome!
So what exactly have we got going on?
Throughout the entire week, the Societies Fair will be taking place on Helmore Street. This event will be holding Faith based stalls. You can come along to celebrate varieties of different faiths and beliefs, and find out more about diverse religions.
The Baha’i Society will have a stall running from the 20th – 22nd November from 9am – 5pm.
You can find the Bible Study Club on Helmore Street the 20th – 21st November from 12pm – 2pm.
The Bhangra Society will be ready to celebrate on the 22nd November from 9am – 5pm.
Tour of Chelmsford Mosque
If you are of the Islam Faith, and want to check out the Chelmsford Mosque, or maybe you aren’t but you want to find out what it’s all about, you can attend the free Tour of the Chelmsford Mosque on the 20th November from 10am – 11:30am. The University Muslim Chaplain, Sidra Naeem, will be showing you around. If you’re interested in coming, make sure you sign up for a free ticket!
Multi Faith Meal
Join The Chaplaincy for the highlight of the week, the Multi Faith Meal on the 23rd November from 5pm – 9pm. We’ll be discussing the topic of relations between the sexes, in light of the #MeToo campaign. Join in the discussion about how religion is characterised in today’s society. The free meal consists of bread and spreads, cheese, and salads, with vegan options available. Join us to celebrate different faiths and beliefs over great food!
Have fun celebrating the diverse range of faiths and beliefs at ARU this week!
