Bring your questions about prayer to a panel of experienced interfaith representatives. Do you wonder whether prayer is for you? What do we mean by prayer? Is it important? Why? What is it for? Do we use set words? Must we kneel ? What is the difference between prayer in different faiths? Can you pray if you are not sure if God exists?
You may be surprised by the similarities and the differences between the answers from different faith traditions.
We welcome everybody who would like to come
at Shirley House, 31 Psalter Lane, Sheffield S11 8YL (218 bus leaves the Interchange at 19.15)

3 Interfaith Events in Sheffield in mid-September (See Flyers below)
7.30 pm Tuesday 17th Sept – Sounds of the Spirit – at St Andrews Psalter Lane Church, S11 8YL. Part of Nether Edge Festival. Featuring
- Zen Buddhist practice
- Recitation of some of the Ninety-Nine Beautiful Names of God from Sufi Muslim tradition
- Sacred hymns and chants from the Sikh faith
12.30 Tuesday 24th Sept – Food & Friendship Lunch- at Upper Chapel, Norfolk Street, S1 2JD Bring and share meal followed by discussion
1.00 -3.00 pm Sunday 22nd Sept – Inspirational Spiritual Women – at St Mary’s Church, Bramall Lane S2 4QZ This event is run by the Women’s Interfaith Forum for Women of any faith
This will be another lunchtime event, at Upper Chapel, the Unitarian chapel on Norfolk Street (S1 2JD) in Sheffield City Centre.
As usual it will be a bring and share meal, and hot drinks will be available.
There will be an opportunity for discussion on some interfaith topic (as yet unspecified) after the meal, but those who can only come for lunch break are very welcome too.
In view of the state of the world, with so many wars, civil wars and climate change causing hostility in previously amicable communities, and refugee crises which may in turn lead to further hostility from areas to which migrants flee, some kind of monthly prayer meeting or peace vigil in Sheffield has been suggested.
We would like to know whether you would attend such a gathering, what form it should take, and when and where would be suitable?
For example Wakefield Interfaith Network hold a 5-minute silent witness outside the cathedral at 11.00 am on the first Saturday of every month, followed by coffee and conversation in a nearby cafe. Would this be a good model for Sheffield, or would you rather book an indoor meeting place such as a room in the Friends Meeting House or Upper Chapel – but what about the cost?
Or would it be a good idea to rotate around different faith buildings in different parts of the city? Would you like people to lead prayers aloud or remain silent?
We would love to hear what you think and what you would be prepared to do (such as book a space, lead a session etc). Bear in mind that something that may seem culture- or faith- neutral to one person may feel very exclusive to another, which is one reason why silent vigils are often used. Please either submit a comment here or contact us on email@example.com
Separate grills for vegetarian, Kosher, Halal, beef and pork. Bring your own food and drink, or bring and share. Bring friends and family. All welcome, no need to book. Goes ahead even if wet, come prepared.
