Faith groups celebrate diversity with community show in Barking
Faith groups will celebrate cultural diversity with a show highlighting the support they give their communities in the economic downturn.
The one-day exhibition will feature singing, international food as well as stalls about the projects they deliver like food banks, children’s clubs, mentoring and pregnancy support.
Members of the public are invited to meet exhibitors at the centre in Ripple Road, Barking, between 4.30pm and 7.30pm on November 22.
The exhibition is being staged as part of Interfaith Week.
Pupils will launch the awareness week with signing and dancing at Henry Green Primary in Green Lane, Dagenham, on Tuesday.
Faith forum chairman Paula Watson, 42, said: “Interfaith Week is about recognising the diversity in our community and promote cohesion.
“Many faith groups try to support the community in these tough times. We want to promote that.”
