Inter-faith commitment
19/11/2009 08:18:00

 
 

In recent years, Croydon has become a much more diverse place as people from all over the world have made their homes here. As a result, all of the world's major faiths are now practised in the borough.

Sadly, some people (including parts of the national media) persist in misunderstanding or misrepresenting the beliefs and practices of some of those faiths. To promote greater understanding and an inter-faith dialogue based on the fact that there is much more that unites us than divides us, the Council supports an inter-faith network, Faiths Together in Croydon.

Yesterday, as part of national Inter-Faith Week, the leaders of the borough's faith communities, together with the steering group of the inter-faith network, came together to sign a commitment to inter-faith working. Pictured are the Bishop of Croydon, Nick Baines, Imam Inamm-ul-Haq Malik, the Imam of Croydon Mosque & Islamic Centre, Dr Jagdish Sharma, the Chairman of Croydon Hindu Council, and the Reverend Dr Barry Goodwin, the Chair of Faiths Together in Croydon.
