Each year, Awareness Sunday acts as a call to people of faith to make a fresh commitment to foster peace in our communities through education and building bridges with our neighbours.

This year, we shall be marking Awareness Sunday on Sunday 25th September. All are invited to mark Awareness Sunday according to their own traditions and beliefs, such as Awareness Friday or Awareness Shabbat.

The Revd Nadim Nassar will be preaching for Awareness Sunday at St. Paul's Cathedral, London. The service begins at 10.30 am and everyone is welcome!
