It’s taken a while, but here are some photos of the Chaplaincy Multi-Faith Centre in our grand new home – 11 Princes Gardens.
In September we moved into five rooms on the ground floor ( just in case the photo suggests we occupy all five floors!)
It is great to have one place to offer hospitality to a multi-plicity of groups from different faith and world views. It is also good to see signs of inter – faith collaboration and working together. Such as, the student led ‘Seeker’s Corner’, a weekly interfaith discussion group.
It is proving very popular with student groups, for prayer, meditation, talks, music, discussions and social events.
We are delighted to be welcoming Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Sikh student groups. We are especially pleased that the Community Action Group are using the kitchen to prepare for their Sunday Soup Run working with local people who are homeless.
It was also good to welcome the Erasmus Society – supporting European exchange students – for a large social gathering.
And with our Meditation and Prayer Room, and the beautiful Garden Room, we now have great spaces for our meditation groups – Buddhist, secular Mindfulness, and Christian.
