The Launch of the Faith Leaders in Sheffield Charter for Education
Over recent months the Faith Leaders’ Group in Sheffield has agreed a charter of principles to guide the way children from different religions learn about and encounter other faiths. This is a significant step forward in our goal of building community cohesion, with each faith leader committing to ensuring children from their religion learn, with tolerance and respect, about the beliefs and practices of our neighbours.
We intend to launch this charter at the Interfaith Event hosted by the Islamic Society of Britain at St Andrew’s Psalter Lane Church (31 Psalter Ln, Sheffield S11 8YL), on Tuesday, 20th November 2018 at 6.00pm.
Following the launch, you would be welcome to stay for the full evening of discussion and sharing together.
For catering purposes please could you let us know if you are planning to join us for the launch by emailing Abdool Gooljar at email@example.com, or phoning 07930 313 773
We look forward to sharing in this launch and the work that will follow.
