Standing Up for One Another!

Building good relationships and working partnerships between people of different faiths and beliefs is part of the year-round work of many people and organisations across the UK.

That is why, as part of our ongoing, 'St.Helens No Place for Hate' campaign, we are celebrating, 'Interfaith Awareness Week 12th - 19th November' with a special interview series:

Faith in St.Helens: a unique look into faith, journey & experiences of life in our borough. 

We would like to thank the volunteers in St.Helens who agreed to take part & tell us their story.

In no particular order, we are delighted to share:

1) 'Love can bring us together' the views & faith of Unitarian minister Bob Janis-Dillon

2) 'Love and look after one another' an interview about Christianity with Christ Church Youth Pastor Sandra Morris

3) 'Worship the creator and not the creation' a journey into Islam with Usama Munir from the Iman Trust


Interfaith Week is for everyone.

All religions, and people of non-religion, are welcome to take part in Interfaith Week. If you would like to take part in an interview to be published on our website during Interfaith Week, please email: marketing@sthelens.gov.uk
