|The Tree House in Luton|
The University of Bedfordshire's Community and Faith Centres have very kindly invited Luton United Synagogue to have a stall at the Faith and Culture Festival on Wednesday 14 Oct from 11am to 3pm at the main Luton campus centre.
The Centres welcome people of all faiths and beliefs and offer personal and spiritual support to students from over 100 countries. The Tree House in Luton and SeedBeds in Bedford offer a relaxing and safe environment, a place to chat and meet friends over a hot or cold drink, space for reflection and prayer.
Revd Andrew Goodman from Luton campus explains: "I'm an Anglican priest and I coordinate the Treehouse team. As a diverse team we really like the buzz of meeting people with different cultures, faiths and beliefs and working on projects together to have fun, learn from each other and achieve things that are going to help make a better world."
The occasion will provide an opportunity to promote Shabbat UK, which will be on 23-24 October. It is a single Saturday in which the entire Jewish community organises communal events so that Jews try to keep the Sabbath even (actually, more especially) if they are not particularly observant. Luton Synagogue will be holding a Friday night meal at the Synagogue on 23 October.
The Tree House keeps an up-to-date local map guide for those looking for a Church, masjid, synagogue, mandir, gurdwara or other place of worship. If you do not find what you are looking for on the map, the Tree House team can advise you. The Tree House has two multi-faith Prayer Rooms and hosts Jummah nearby.
The Tree House hosts a series of special events throughout the year including film nights, discussions on a range of topics, and popular get-togethers
where you can sample food from different parts of the world.
