Shared World Environmental Initiative – 1

Saturday 10th November at 6pm – St Paul’s Church Stoke Road

For more information, contact Malcolm 07909 100675

As a new venture for 2012, Slough Faith Partnership is supporting a project to encourage local
action on the environment across faith communities. Called Shared World, it aims to bring people
together in a shared space as a focus in making decisions towards a practical and local expression of our responsibility towards our shared environment. The project is a partnership between Slough Faith Partnership and the Burnham and Slough Deanery Climate Concern group.

This is the  first meeting for the project. Feedback from this event will then inform a second event at 7pm on Friday Nov 23rd at The Centre, Farnham Road. At this event, the spotlight will turn to the state of the environment both globally and locally, not only because of its crucial importance in contemporary thinking, but because most faiths have an awareness of our relationship to creation as a significant part of their self-understanding.

Inter Faith Awareness Walk

Sunday 18th November at 11.45am – meet outside Kingsway URC Church Street

For more information, contact Rafi 07887 840477 or Michèle 07919 095118

Slough is a multi-cultural town;  people living here have many different nationalities, languages, belief systems, customs and traditions, but we all share the same values of peace, respect, wisdom and harmony.

Throughout the year, Slough Faith Partnership promotes these values by organizing activities involving different faiths and community groups with the aim of increasing mutual understanding and providing opportunities to exchange ideas, socialise, and work together. This year we are proud to be holding an awareness walk in the town centre on Sunday Nov 18th, where we will meet members of the public and encourage them to get involved with our work.

Who am I? – Religious Identity of Young People

Monday 19th November at 7pm – Kingsway URC Church Street

Who Am I? is a project in which young people explore and discuss their religious identities. It grew out of an Inter Faith 2010 event and has now been produced and filmed at Slough Grammar School, with  Sixth-form students, teachers and Inter Faith groups taking part.

The resulting DVD – a resource for schools and other groups as a basis for debate and discussion – will be officially launched  at Kingsway, Church Street on Monday Nov 19th at 7pm. During the evening some of the students who took part will be talking about their experiences.
