From Cathedral to Mosque ...


Christian Muslim Forum Pilgrimage 2015

Saturday 19 September 2015   9am to 6pm

Join the Forum as we walk 23 miles together from the Coptic Orthodox Church Centre in Hertfordshire to Palmers Green Mosque in North London.

His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, will send us off in the morning and we will be welcomed at the finish by Dr Husna Ahmad of Palmers Green Mosque.  We will be meeting well-wishers along the way and stopping at places of significance.

The Pilgrimage will be led by Qaisra Khan, a wellbeing, interfaith and engagement facilitator, and Julian Bond, former Director of the Forum.  We will learn about the traditions of pilgrimages in Islam and Christianity along the way.

As well as demonstrating good Christian-Muslim relations, pilgrims will be raising funds for the Forum through sponsorship.
