Next Calderdale Women’s Interfaith Event

The next Calderdale Women’s Interfaith Group event is on Friday 5 April, 10:30am
at Heath United Reformed Church, Free School Lane, Halifax HX3 0DW. This is on the corner of Free School Lane and Manor Drive. There is on-street parking in the area. It is also easy to reach by bus from the town centre – 574 and 577 stop a few yards away from the front door. Perveen Hussain and Claire de Ramaix are looking forward to giving us a presentation on the topic “Looking after our health and wellbeing in the light of the spiritual teachings, a shared perspective from the Muslim and the Baha’i Faith”. Do come along, bring a friend and take the opportunity to hear about this subject.

Many thanks to Rev Madeleine Russell for a really well attended and received talk about the Taize community in France a few weeks ago. We are sure that the next meeting will be just as interesting!

The May get-together is likely to be a walk in the locality on a Saturday – no date or route yet selected. Possibly we will do some litter-picking as we walk along.
