​Interfaith picnic at Holland House

This afternoon, retreat house Holland
House, will host its 2nd interfaith
picnic. Last year around 100 people
from nine different faiths came
together to enjoy the picnic. People
of all ages enjoyed a vegan buffet
and English cream tea along with
traditional music from the faiths

The picnic is a joint project between
Holland House and the Worcestershire
Interfaith Forum. Warden of Holland House, Ian Spencer said: “Our hope is to create
an opportunity for people of faith to sit with each other and meet together in a very
social way. It is also important for us to show that people of faith respect each other’s
tradition and that we get on!” 

Haris Saleem, president of the Worcester Muslim Welfare Association, said: “It’s really
important for the different communities in Worcester to get together and understand one
another better. If we have better understanding, I believe we become better citizens.” 

Faiths represented at last year’s picnic were Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Hindu,
Sikh, Quaker, Unitarian and Muslim. Alongside the food and music there was also a
bouncy castle and games for the children to enjoy. 

Pray for all those who have been involved in organising the Interfaith picnic and for all
those who will attend.
