more Quaker notices for April....

Interfaith Peacebuilding
26 September 2015 – Day Conference at Friends House, London
Quaker Committee for Christian and Interfaith Relations (Qf&p 9.13) with Quaker Peace & Social Witness invites area Quaker meeting (AQM) appointees to attend this day conference on Interfaith Peacebuilding. The focus will be particularly on work with Jewish and Muslim communities in Britain.
What are the challenges? How can Quakers respond?

Even if not able to go there might be things of interest - Christian and Interfaith relationships happen locally and globally!
