Coffee & cupcakes in Merton

Merton Council is supporting Merton Interfaith Forum’s Hospitality Month – places of worship opening their doors, offering refreshments and welcoming people from different religious traditions and the wider community.  The next event is this Sunday morning at Immanuel House and all Merton’s religious groups are invited to host an event – contact Evereth Willis on 020-8545 4637.

Do you have a women’s group at your place of worship in Merton?  Would you like to invite women from your local church, mosque, temple, synagogue, gurdwara or community group over for coffee?

The Council has provided all the equipment you need (hot drinks dispensers, tea, coffee, biscuits) for Women’s Interfaith Coffee Mornings.  They were a lot of fun last year.  There’s also a banner to use for the occasion – all you need to do is put the word around and add cupcakes!

The first of these is on 9th May at the Baitul Futuh Mosque.  Download the Women’s Interfaith Coffee info sheet if you’d like to host a coffee morning, or contact Evereth Willis at Merton Council on 020 8545 4637.  The coffee mornings and Hospitality Week are part of this year’s Olympic Truce activities, building trust across the host city during 2012.
