Medway Inter Faith Action Pilgrimage

 Medway Inter Faith Action is part of the Inter Faith network for the United Kingdom and its members are drawn from all religions in Medway.

On Sunday 20th September pilgrims will join worshippers in the Cathedral at 9am.

This will be the start of a journey round some of the Medway Faith Centres. There will be visits to the Quakers in Rochester, St Peters, Rochester, the Unitarians, Chatham, Gillingham Mosque, and the Hindu temple Gillingham. Likely highlights will be open air prayer sessions in the High Streets of Rochester, Chatham and Gillingham. 

This year’s themes are Respect for all faiths, Equality in religious belief and Peace – the rejection of all forms of religious discrimination and conflict.

It is very interesting to learn about those things religions hold in common and we are proud that in this modern world people of different faiths can walk together in full recognition of the fundamental importance of spirituality for human life.

All are welcome to join at any point in the day. Some help will be available for those who may not wish to do the walking. For those who do walk, the company of the other pilgrims can be enjoyed and the distances are not over challenging.

At the end of the day there will be an evening event with food and entertainment at the Sunlight Centre in Gillingham.

The day’s programme is available at the Cathedral or by ringing the organiser Hugh Hawkins 01634 843307.
