Women and Faith

 

Women and Faith

One of the blessings of living in a multicultural society is that daily we rub shoulders with people of many different faiths and religious traditions. Christians, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus and Buddhists among many world religions, make up the rich tapestry of communities in our society.

As part of our contribution to this years’ Interfaith Week we welcome to our diocese, Dr Carmody Grey, Assistant Professor in Catholic Theology at Durham University, Dr. Yafa Shanneik, lecturer in Islamic studies at Birmingham University and Lindsay Simmonds who teaches at the London School of Jewish Studies who, together, will dialogue and explore with us the changing role of women in three religions, Christianity, Islam and Judaism.

Taking place on 27th November at 7pm in the Apostle Room, Clifton Cathedral, we hope many of you will take the opportunity to join these three women in helping us to appreciate more the role women can play in faith.  Refreshments will be available from 6.30pm and give people the opportunity to view an exhibition of art which links with the theme of the evening.
