Interfaith conference

Thursday 12 November

Oldham Sixth Form College, Union St W, Oldham OL8 1XU

Staff and students attended (virtually, of course) with members of the 4 major religions: Father Phil Sumner, Rabbi Daniel Walker, Mufti Helal Mahmood and Mr Jit Kara. Students had the opportunity to discuss key topics with leaders of the faiths. The first topic discussed was an obvious one. Students posed questions about how the coronavirus pandemic had impacted on the number of people accessing support from their faith. The leaders discussed how they had been working together to ensure the Oldham community as a whole was supported, such as using the Mosques to provide food packages for those in need. The overall message was that there has been an increase in the number of people accessing support, but it has been increasingly difficult to provide support in a meaningful way without face-to-face meetings.
