Three religions represented at meeting of Keighley Interfaith Group
8:00am Sunday 30th December 2012 in News
Local followers of three religions attended this year's Christmas dinner staged by Keighley Interfaith Group.
Christians, Muslims and Buddhists chatted about a range of issues during the meal at Azeems restaurant.
The Rev Peter Mott, one of the group's leading lights, said there were people from several denominations including two traditions of Buddhism.
Peace campaigner Sylvia Boyes distributed cards from Amnesty International giving information about prisoners of conscience.
Diners spoke about 2013 activities for the group to encourage communication and friendship between local faiths.
One suggestion was to work towards making Keighley a "Fairtrade town" that supported the selling of products from developing countries.
Keighley Interfaith Group was formed in the late 1990s following a multicultural rally at Cougar Park.
The group organised an annual Walk of Friendship which visited various places of worship before a shared picnic in Cliffe Castle Park.
The group also holds regular meetings for peace and reconciliation.
