Samovar, mint tea or chai? Inter Faith Week | 26 November 3-5pm

After Breakfast (2010) and then Lunch (2011) in Multifaith Europe during Inter Faith Week, LBFN welcomes you to afternoon tea with a difference!

Download the flyer here and distribute to your networks.

Come to the Boardroom, 1st Floor, Voluntary Sector Centres, The Merchant Centre, 1 New Street Square, London EC4A 3BF on 26th November 3-5pm.

There will be updates from the European Network on Religion and Belief (launched this year) and discussion on how local religious, multifaith and interconvictional groups across Europe can work together for the common good.  Local communities in Europe face a number of challenges.  What are the issues?  How do we tackle them together?

Bring tea leaves (or bags) of your choice, and any additional ingredients, and we will enjoy a wide range of tea which is currently drunk in very different ways across the continent.

We are delighted that the Faith-based Regeneration Network is hosting this special occasion – thank you!

Book now to reserve your place: there are limited seats around the boardroom table.

ENORB Round Table & Reception in Brussels

Come & meet people from across Europe who are doing the kinds of thing LBFN members do – building trust across different religions and beliefs, combating discrimination and prejudice, working locally and with public sector partners for the common good.

LBFN has been actively making links across Europe for a few years and has been part of the European Network on Religion and Belief development group from the start.  We’ve held a couple of gatherings in London – the last at Europe House in Westminster.

The topic for ENORB’s first meeting at the EU Parliament on 29th May is Security in Europe: the contribution of Europe’s diversity of religions, humanist and philosophical traditions to overcoming discrimination, violence and extremism.  The EU Parliament Vice President László Surján will be with us.

You’ll find more info and details of how to apply here ENORB Roundtable & Reception Brussels and the invitation is here ENORB Invitation to Brussels.

The round table has limited places, but the evening reception and workshops the following day will be able to accommodate many more.  Eurostar tickets are cheaper if you book well in advance . .

There’s a short piece ‘Making faith matter in the EU’ in the Economic and Social Research Council’s Britain in 2012 (I can’t find it online, but it’s at newsagents).
