We are marking Interfaith Week at Underbank Unitarian Chapel, Stannington, on November 18th at 11.00 am.

Please see te attachment below for more details. Don’t keep it yourself – tell others.

Yesterday’s terrible Antisemitic attack on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh USA has been responded to here in the UK with prayers and with words of condemnation and strong messages of solidarity with the Jewish community from across the UK’s faith communities.
Like attacks on churches, gurdwaras, mosques, temples and other places of worship of different faiths here and around the world, it is a reminder of the need to condemn extremist violence in the strongest terms and to stand together and to continue to work together with ever greater urgency against ignorance, prejudice and hatred.
There is no place in civilised society for Antisemitism.
Nor is there a place for Islamophobia and hatreds targeting communities of other faiths and beliefs.
All communities must be able to exist in safety and to practise their faith freely and without fear.
