The group was founded 12 years ago and began by studying Islam with Dr Chris Hewer, going on to study papal documents about interfaith. The original intention was to concentrate on spirituality, but in fact the topics covered have been much wider. Over the years we have heard excellent speakers from all traditions. We have visited mosques, synagogues, gurdwaras and temples, and taken part in interfaith walks. We are now revisiting the climate crisis, studying Pope Francis’ encyclical ‘Laudato Si’

We meet in the Hinsley Room, Morpeth Terrace on the third Wednesday of the month from 2 to 3.30pm and all are welcome. To find the Hinsley room, stand in front of the Cathedral and walk to your right past St Paul’s bookshop and SVP school. Look for a fence covered in ivy and a garden between the 2 playgrounds. All are welcome and there is no need to book. 

Our next meeting is on 15 June and we will discuss chapters 3 and 4 of ‘Laudato Si’. The document is available from St Paul’s bookshop, cost £4.95, or online at
