Inter Faith week in Worcestershire: Cooking and choirs
Frying pan
The event is free, but booking is advisable

A "Cultures and Cookery" event is being held in Worcester on Thursday, 25 November from 1000 to 1300 GMT as part of Inter Faith week.

Local families can bring their favourite recipes to the Saffron Children's Centre, Stanley Road, and show their neighbours how to cook them.

A wallchart showing what foods and drinks are permitted by the various faiths of Worcester will be produced.

This will then be sent out to schools and pre-schools in the county.

The Reverend Duncan Ballard, one of the organisers, said: "There can be no better way of getting to know your neighbour than eating with them - this is how lasting friendships are made."

Some of the dishes already planned include Portuguese apple dumplings, French crepes, North Indian samosas, English scones and Brazilian cup cakes.

Singing for peace

You can go and hear the choir singing for free

On Friday, 26 November, 200 children from eight local primary schools will be singing for peace, in another Inter Faith week event.

The Worcester Interfaith Choir will perform at Nunnery Wood High School at 1830 GMT.

The Reverend Duncan Ballard said: "Children can show all of us the way to live and work and pray together - the harmony of a choir singing is a vivid picture of how we can be in Worcester."

After the concert, the children will be tying their prayers for peace to 100% bio-degradable sky lanterns, which will then be launched into the skies.

Other events

Inter Faith week is a national event, running from Sunday, 21 to Friday, 26 November.

There are a number of events in Worcestershire to mark the week, including a national conference at the University of Worcester on charitable giving in Christianity and Islam', story telling from other faiths at Worcester City Library, and special school assemblies throughout the county.
