Inter Faith in Peckham

A locally arranged inter-faith walk was organised in Peckham on Saturday 5th January between 11am and 3.30pm, visiting several faith places:

  • 11.00am Copleston Centre Church
  • 12.15pm Choumert Grove Mosque
  • 13.45pm Rye Lane Baptist Chapel
  • 14.45pm Baha'i Faith members hosting the end of the walk at the police station Peckham High St.

The idea was to meet other-faith neighbours. It was open to all faiths or none, and those interested to know more about other faiths, or inter faith work, or our multi faith society, or visit interesting Peckham buildings or any combination of those. It was a gentle walk, and an enjoyable and interesting way for us all to learn more about each other as neighbours. It was organised by Rev Paul Collier of Copleston Centre Church,Jamille Mohammed secretary of the Peckham Islamic Centre,and Sgt Emma Dickinson of the police Lane Safer Neighbourhood Team, with the support of the Southwark Multi Faith Forum (SMFF), and the South London Inter Faith Group (SLIFG). The unanimous conclusion was that this was an excellent way to develop good connections between people of different faiths and cultures in Peckham. There was significant interest in finding out more and likely support for educational activities, and involving more local venues. Further information is in this short report.
