What can we do about terrorism, racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and fundamentalism? Let’s try making friends and learning about each other. Join us for a bring and share, mostly vegetarian, meal.
Following a successful lunch at Upper Chapel in March, the next Sheffield Interfaith Food and Friendship bring and share dinner will be back at Shirley House next Wednesday (sorry for the short notice) 3rd April.
We welcome everybody who would like to come
at Shirley House, 31 Psalter Lane, Sheffield S11 8YL

We hope to arrange further lunch gatherings in the City Centre, but no dates are yet arranged. There will be no ‘Food and Friendship’ meals during May due to Ramadan, which begins around 5th May and lasts for 4 weeks.
The following statement has been produced by the Co-Chairs of the Inter Faith Network for the UK and Moderators of the IFN Faith Communities Forum regarding the horrific terrorist attack on mosques in Christchurch NZ –
|Today’s appalling terrorist attacks on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, have been responded to here in the UK with prayers, condemnation, and demonstrations of solidarity with the Muslim community, including at the Friday prayer. |
As we said after the murderous attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh USA last year, attacks on churches, gurdwaras, mosques, temples and other places of worship of different faiths here and around the world are 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.
Hatred targeting any community because of its faith and belief is a scourge that cannot be tolerated. There must be freedom to worship and practise our faith freely and without fear.

At our last AGM people suggested both that we should hold our bring and share Food and Friendship meals in different places around the city and that we should try holding them at lunchtime instead of evenings.
So we are very grateful to the Unitarians of Upper Chapel, Norfolk Street, in the City Centre of Sheffield, who have invited us to use their premises in March.
The format will be the same, please bring some food to share (hot or cold, savoury or sweet, mostly vegetarian), if you are able. There’s no need to book, just come and meet people.
You are warmly invited to hear presentations by Mrs Christine Jackson and Dr Ismail Mesut Sezgin, with opportunity for questions and discussion.

Women In Islam – Dr Chris Hewer, Mon, Feb 18, 2019 at 6:30 PM -8.30 pm Tickets (free) available from: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/women-in-islam-dr-chris-hewer-tickets-55428746874
The Prophet Muhammad said “Only an honourable man treats women with honour and integrity, and only a vile and dishonorable man humiliates and degrades women.” Being a Muslim is often more than a religious identity. In order to have a deeper understanding of the real role of women in Islam, diverse perspectives on gender and women in Islam, and how Islam personally treats to women, we are holding a seminar with the participation of Dr Chris Hewer on Monday, 18th February 2019 at our community building in Attercliffe, Sheffield. We will have the special opportunity to listen to his insights and thoughts on women in Islam. The event will start at 6.30pm and will consist of two sessions and a refreshment break. We kindly invite anyone who is interested. We also believe that such events give us the opportunity to get together and get to know new people. Therefore, everyone is welcome. The event is free of charge.
Part 1: Dr Chris Hewer’s Speech
