Sharing Festivals

Religious festivals and holidays can be a great opportunity for relationship and partnership between people from different faith communities. They present a simple opportunity for us to share our special occasions with others and to experience something of theirs as well. Our Sharing Ramadan events have been particularly successful over the last five years, especially in Cardiff and Bristol. We partner with local mosques who generously host groups of non-Muslims during the Iftar meal (evening breaking of the fast).
