The London Peace Network has been working on something very special coming up this autumn. View and download the flyer here.
This year the International Day of Peace, which is marked each year on 21 September, falls on a Friday.
Islamic centres across the UK and overseas will be leading their local communities in marking the day.
They will invite visitors to join them during or after Friday Prayers to exchange messages of peace, to celebrate local peace-building activities and to enjoy the hospitality offered.
Local schools, churches, synagogues, temples, gurdwaras and community organisations will be invited to observe the day by accepting these invitations.
Some Islamic Centres in the UK are pairing up with a nearby church, religious community or school and linking their observance of the International Day of Peace to similar pairs overseas.
The following Muslim centres and organisations will be marking the International Day of Peace this year.
Al-Khoei Islamic Centre
East London Mosque
The London Central Mosque and the Islamic Cultural Centre
Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board
Muslim Council of Britain
We invite you to join them and to participate by inviting visitors, or by accepting invitations, to mark the occasion at your local mosque or Islamic centre.
To find out more, or to register your Mosque or Islamic Centre on the online Directory, please contact the London Peace Network.
Further information: each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The United Nations General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
