Britain’s Prince Charles meets faith leaders
Britain’s Prince Charles held a private meeting with local leaders of different faiths as he visited St John’s Church.
The 67-year-old royal attended the talk at the church in Southall, west London.
Reverend Mark Poulson, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s adviser for inter-religious affairs, told the Evening Standard newspaper: “They talked about their own experiences, their own backgrounds and encouraged him [Charles] and thanked him for contributing to the debate.”
The faith leaders meet on a regular basis as part of the Southall Faiths Forum and whilst they initially had their differences of opinion, they have come together for the “common good”.
Whilst visiting the church, the Prince of Wales also met with members of the community who had got involved with activities at the venue.
One group of women were being taught English through a “craft and conversation” project where they made reusable shopping bags out of cloth.
Meanwhile, the Prince was busy yesterday (10.02.16), having visited Ashley Primary School’s additional learning facility, the Harmony Centre.
A post on the school’s official website reads: “He was greeted by a superb exhibition of the children’s learning in the school hall, followed by a visit to some of the classrooms. He then officially opened our new Harmony Centre by cutting a vibrant green ribbon.”
