Black Country Near Neighbours Celebration
Wed 26 April 2017, 11:00 – 13:00 BST
We would like to invite you to the Black Country Near Neighbours Celebration with The Bishop of Lichfield Michael Ipgrave Wednesday 26th April 11am to 1pm at the Bilston Peoples Centre.
Near Neighbours has been running in the Black Country since 2014. We have funded more than 150 projects in Walsall, Wolverhampton, Sandwell and Dudley.
The aim of our work is to bring people from different faith and ethnic backgrounds together to break down misunderstanding and develop trust between people.
We have been supporting faith and community groups in the Black Country through our small grants programme (grants for £250-£5000). Projects have delivered work that fits the following criteria:
- Social interaction - developing positive relationships in multi-faith areas i.e. helping people from different faiths get to know and understand each other better.
- Social action - encouraging people of different faiths, or no faith, to come together for initiatives that improve their local neighbourhood.
Please come along to our event to find out more about Near Neighbours.
You will hear from funded projects and learn how the Near Neighbours programme can bring people together.
We will also be joined by Bishop of Lichfield and trustee for Near Neighbours, Michael Ipgrave who will share his own reflections on Interfaith work.
