Faith in Hackney – Pilgrimage from City of London to Hackney

On Saturday 24 November 2012, as part of Inter Faith Week 2012, and in partnership St Paul’s Cathedral, and sister interfaith organisations, the Christian Muslim Council and Faith in Music, as well as St Michael and All Angels Church, Hackney, the Interfaith Alliance UK (Occupy Faith UK) launched a new interfaith body, “Faith in Hackney”, which aims to bring together people of different faiths in Hackney through music, culture and the arts and sport.

As part of this, in partnership with local people, we held a special service in the morning at St Paul’s Cathedral (St Dunstan’s Chapel) with the support of the Dean and Chapter, and then walked an Interfaith Pilgrimage through the significant faith and historical sites from the heart of the richest part of the country in the City of London to one of the poorest in North Hackney.

We shared an evening meal together at St Michael and All Angels Church at the kind hospitality of the vicar, Revd James Lawson, and our Occupy Faith Chaplain, Revd Kevin Snyman made this lovely film to mark the occasion:
