The Importance of Faith in a ‘Secular’ Society

Wednesday 14 November 18.30 – 21.00

Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, 244 Acklam Road, London, W10 5YG

A panel discussion on the importance of faith, faith communities and organisations in a growing secular society.

Discussions surrounding faith in the UK show that there is much confusion over the current status of Britain and its relationship with faith. Whilst many would argue that Britain has become more secular, it is also clear that faith communities and organisations are more involved than before in social projects, helping some of the most vulnerable people within society.

Join us for an interesting discussion which will not only discuss whether Britain is a 'secular' nation, but also to explore the various ways the Christian, Muslim and Jewish community are working independently and together in playing a pivotal role in shaping society.

Speakers will include individuals from different faith groups and organisations who will provide an insight into the work they are currently doing in Britain and why it is significant.

We're very pleased that the following speakers will be joining us for the discussion on the importance of faith in a 'secular' society:

Shafiur Rahman, East London Mosque and London Muslim Centre
Laura Marks, Founder of Mitzvah Day,
Iqbal Nasim, CEO of National Zakat Foundation,
Simon Perfect, Researcher and Teaching Fellow at SOAS University of Londonand Theos Think Tank
