Sharing Festivals

Building understanding by sharing religious festivals

We bring people together through the religious festivals to grow our understanding and empathy for one another.

Religious festivals and holidays are a great opportunity for building relationships and partnering with people from different faith communities. They present a simple opportunity for us to share our special occasions with each other.

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).

 I think Sharing Ramadan is important because a lot of frictions in communities happen because of ignorance, and I think that one of the best ways to get over that is to educate each other… We need to foster mutual respect to increase understanding between our communities.
