Save the dates: Multi Faith Spaces Exhibition 9th-13th July

Do you ever visit a prayer room or quiet room?

Does your local hospital, commercial centre, police station, airport, university, college or prison have a multi faith space?

  • Who are the key individuals involved in the development and management of these spaces?
  • Do multi faith spaces encourage social cohesion, or do they simply house difference’?

LBFN is bringing Manchester University’s research Multi Faith Spaces – Symptoms and Agents of Religious and Social Change to London.

The display will be up from Monday 9th July to Friday 13th July at St Alphege Hall, Kings Bench St, SE1 0QZ (nearest tube Southwark).

The Principal Researcher, Dr Chris Hewson, will be talking about the research on Tuesday 10th July at lunchtime.  Revd Dr Howard Worsley of London South Bank University’s Multi Faith Chaplaincy will also be speaking.  Light refreshments will be served.

Opening times are still to be confirmed but they are likely to be 11am to 4pm each day.

Chaplains, those with pastoral or managerial responsibility for a multi faith space, designers, architects and those interested in what these spaces represent and the impact they have will find the exhibition of interest.

Discussions will take place each day at allotted times, with refreshments served.

Workshops on multi faith spaces in

  • the NHS
  • in universities
  • in colleges of further education
  • in the police and prison services
  • in commercial settings

are being planned.  If you are interested in taking part, let LBFN know so that we can fix times that are convenient for you – and if you would like to lead a workshop on another topic.

For further details, please get in touch.  In the meantime, here is the project’s latest newsletter.
