Merton Council, in partnership with the borough’s Faith and Belief Forum are encouraging residents to take part in Interfaith Week from 11-18 November, to celebrate diversity in their communities.

On Wednesday 14 November between 7-9pm there will be an evening of scriptural reasoning, followed by a meal at The Salvation Army Hall in Morden.

A ladies coffee morning will be held on Thursday 15 November from 11am – 1.00pm at the Morden Islamic Community Centre. The event is organised by the Muslim Women of Merton and welcomes women of all cultures, faiths and no faith. Please note, this is a women only event.

On Sunday 18 November from 2-4pm, residents can take a tour of Wimbledon Mosque, the first purpose built Mosque in South London.

Interfaith Week is held in the third week of November to highlight the good work of local faith and belief groups and celebrate diversity in communities.

Merton’s cabinet member for community safety, engagement and equalities, Councillor Edith Macauley, said: “Interfaith Week is a time for us to come together to celebrate diversity in our community. I hope that this year even more individuals will take part, encouraging people of different faiths and no faith to socialise and strengthen relationships.”
