#LondonIsOpen after Westminster attacks

The Mayor’s vigil in Trafalgar Square yesterday brought Londoners together from across our communities.

It’s a good time to remember that London’s faith communities continue to be open and welcoming.  View and share the film that captures this spirit.

#LondonIsOpen film for Inter Faith Week

London’s faith communities are open and welcoming!

In step with the Mayor’s #LondonIsOpen message, a short film has been shot on location across the capital and includes Sikh, Quaker, Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, Christian, Buddhist & Baha’i places opening their doors.

Against a backdrop of international tensions and increased hate crime, London’s faith groups, from humble to grand, are not closed and fearful – we remain open and welcoming!

Inter Faith Week events across London are screening the new film as part of their activities – you are welcome to do the same by using this link.  Can you identify the different places?
