“Exploring Sacred Spaces & Getting to Know Our Neighbours”
From 4 – 12 November 2017 several hundred people participated in one or more visits to 7 different faith venues throughout the Auckland region, organised by the Committee of the Auckland Inter-Faith Council. The participants expressed their appreciation for being able to see new places and learn something about the faiths practiced there in an informal and relaxed way. Each of the host venues made sure the guests were welcomed, received some basic information as well as a tour of the facilities, answered any questions, and provided refreshments and an opportunity to mix and mingle.
The programme this year included visits to Muslim, Christian (Anglican and Catholic), Sikh, Buddhist, and Hindu places of worship. It was promoted to the public through Our Auckland website, Event Finda, various newsletters, and by posters. We intend to continue this project on an annual basis.
