Woking People of Faith Events

International Day of Peace – This year’s theme is ‘Climate Action for Peace’. We have asked children to produce
a poster or poem in answer to the question: ‘What is causing climate change and what can people of faith do
to help solve it?’
We would normally hold an event to mark the occasion and invite the Mayor of Woking to give prizes to the
winners at Woking Town Centre, along with other activities. However, this year, we are having to do things
differently and are working with RHS Wisley Gardens to mark the event on Zoom on Tuesday 21st September
2021 at 6.30 pm till 7.15 pm. Winners of the competition will be announced and a short talk from RHS Wisley
Gardens. All welcome to join on zoom.

Inter Faith Week 14-21 November

The aims of Inter Faith Week are to:
→ Strengthen good inter faith relations at all levels;
→ Increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK,
celebrating and building on the contribution which their members make to their
neighbourhoods and to wider society; and
→ Increase understanding between different people of religious and non-religious
beliefs
This year Inter Faith Week takes place from Sunday 14 to Sunday 21 November. It’s a Week for everyone –
young and old and of different faiths and beliefs, including non-religious beliefs. Activities benefit those who
take part; they also send a strong message that good inter faith relations matter and that there is appreciation
of people’s faiths and beliefs and how those inspire them to contribute to the community and live well
together.
The Week is timed do begin each year on Remembrance Sunday to enable people of different backgrounds to
remember together the service of soldiers and civilians of all faiths and beliefs and to reflect on peace. Lots of
ideas for Inter Faith Week activity can be found at https://www.interfaithweek.org/resources/ideas

Follow the Week at @ifweek on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The Week’s hashtag is #InterFaithWeek. For
further information, contact the Inter Faith Week team at interfaithweek@interfaith.org.uk.
