Walk for Peace

On Sunday 15th October our Newcastle community joined the annual “Walk for Peace”

It was an inter-faith event beginning at the Hindu Temple, processing to the Anglican Church of the Venerable Bede, the Central Mosque, the site of the first Jewish Synagogue in Newcastle, and ending at the Sikh Gurdwara. 

At each place there were refreshments and a brief talk about the various faiths.  The Sikhs are famous for their hospitality and a full meal was laid on. 

This year was the biggest procession since it began and we met very interesting people along the walk – our own Bishop Seamus Cunningham, the Anglican woman Bishop, women from the Jewish reformed Synagogue, the Sherriff of Newcastle,  some Sikhs who were delighted to know Sr. Jill was born in India, to mention but a few. 

Even the humanist society joined in and felt fully accepted and welcomed.  It was good that we could all join together with a common mind on the desire for peace in the world.
