Pictures from Merton’s inter faith walk

Merton Inter Faith Forum, supported by Merton Partnership, organised a walk on Sunday as part of South London Inter Faith Group‘s weekend of walks for this Olympic year.  The walk attracted a wide range of local residents.  The Revd Andrew Wakefield has kindly sent in some photos.

Inter Faith Walks 14 – 15 July

One of the very best ways to meet  local people from different religious traditions – or none – walking and talking together, discovering the unexpected.

South London Inter Faith Group has been encouraging local inter faith walks for years.

This year, all the south London boroughs and some in north London are organising inter faith walks on the weekend of 14th – 15th July.

Join in or organise your own!
