On Sunday 20th November, St Saviourgate Unitarian Chapel will host the closing ceremony of York’s annual Interfaith Week. The ceremony will be preceded by an Interfaith Service attended by members from a range of diverse faith backgrounds. Special guests include the Lord Mayor and Civic Party.
At 11:00am, the Chapel will host ‘Finding Sanctuary’, an Interfaith Service for people of all faith backgrounds. This will be followed by a vegetarian shared lunch. Attendees are encouraged to bring vegetarian food to share. All are welcome.
At 13:00pm, the Chapel will host the final event of York Interfaith Week. During the ceremony, the winners of the York Interfaith Group Logo Competition will be revealed and presented with certificates and prizes. The competition ran between September and early November, inviting school children to create an inclusive, eye-catching interfaith logo.
“We are delighted to be hosting this event, which brings together people of different backgrounds to celebrate the diversity of faith traditions in York and their contributions to making our city a safe sanctuary,” says Reverend Stephanie Bisby, minister of York Unitarians.
“As Unitarians we acknowledge the wisdom of all faiths and seek to form connections with all who share our values of freedom, reason and compassion. It is a special pleasure to be hosting the ceremony this year, as one of our congregation, Dee Boyle, is currently serving as vice-chair of York Interfaith Group.”
