Inter-Faith Week
15th – 21st November

 

The Multi-Faith Centre will be exhibiting photographs from the recent ‘Faith and Spirituality’ photography competition during Inter-Faith Week along with being featured in the Derby Telegraph.
 
The Centre will also be working with the University of Derby Students' Union and Upbeat Communities to host a ‘Welcome Boxes’ project student launch event. This will take place on Tuesday 17th November 3-5pm in the MFC Bishop Lonsdale Room and will include a talk on the project as well as the opportunity to wrap and pack boxes and learn about how to get involved.

 

Splendour of the Cosmos
Mon. 16th Tue. 17th and Wed. 18th November 4-6pm
 
As part of the celebration of Inter-Faith Week, the University of Derby Chaplaincy, in conjunction with the Multi-Faith Centre, has arranged for ‘Splendour of the Cosmos’, a work by international artist Sudha Daniel, to be projected onto the exterior wall of the Multi-Faith Centre. The work brings art, astronomy and spirituality together in a unique way and so makes a fitting subject for Inter Faith Week and also links well with the celebration of 2015 as the United Nations International Year of Light. Sudha, who is a former lecturer at the University of Derby, says that the curvature of the MFC wall enhances the nature of the subject as nothing out there in the Cosmos is a flat surface.

An opportunity to visit and encounter a variety of faith traditions.
