Rise up Dudley

January 13th, 2015 Comments off

We are joining with Hope not Hate to hold a celebration of multicultural Dudley at St John’s Parish Hall on Kates Hill on January 31st (st-thomas-event-2015-01-31.compressed).

Some of you will have heard about activity in Dudley, proposed for February 7th, by people who want to divide Dudley rather than bring people together. We are hoping that our event which is part of our One Dudley campaign, will be living proof that we can celebrate our diversity and in turn support each other.

Please come and join us if you can.

Imam Hashmi with the Bishop of Worcester at Worcester Diocesan Synod

On 25th November, Imam Hashmi, our Vice-Chair, addressed the Synod of Worcester Diocese on the ongoing crisis in Iraq/Syria. The motion passed by Synod states:

“This Synod, condemning the violation of people’s right to freedom of religion and belief in Iraq and Syria, and especially the destruction of ancient Christian communities, calls upon:

(a) Churches to pray and give generously to support all refugees of this current crisis; and

(b) the Prime Minister and Her Majesty’s Government to engage positively with the UNHCR and other international aid agencies to offer asylum to all those who are being persecuted for their faith; and

(c) welcomes work among faith leaders, such as that in Dudley towards a joint declaration for peace.”
