Inter Faith week at BMC
As part of Inter Faith Week, Brooksby Melton College (BMC) has put together a display designed to promote the understanding between faiths and wider society.
The faiths represented through the displays were Christianity, Sikhism, Hindu, Buddhism, Islam and Judaism.
Students were given the chance to study the displays, which included items associated with the different religions. Explanations of the items and what they represented were also part of the exhibit, giving those who visited the display the chance to develop their understanding.
The Mayor of Melton, Councillor Alison Freer, came to BMCs Melton Campus during Inter Faith Week to look at the work that the college and students had been doing.
Inter Faith Week 2011 took place across the UK between 20th and 26th November. It is designed to strengthen good inter faith relations, increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK and increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs.
The displays were available at the Melton Campus from 20th to 26th November and were then moved to the Brooksby Campus from 27th to 2nd December.
