Following the closure of the Civic Centre at the end of 2016, the Dacorum Interfaith Network found themselves without a home, so Hemel Quakers have offered a room at our Meeting House.
Quakers have a long tradition of inter-faith activity and understanding of other faiths is a key element in Quakerism which asks us, “Do you work gladly with other religious groups in the pursuit of common goals?”
Because a Quaker meeting house does not have any religious symbols or imagery, its very plain style easily accommodates use by the wider community.
The Dacorum Interfaith Network meets once a month at 8pm on the second Monday in the main hall until further notice. It is hoped that the Network will eventually find a secular home at the new Forum building, but until then they can enjoy the facilities at the 300 year-old meeting house – now including wifi and digital projection.
For more information about the Dacorum Interfaith Network, email firstname.lastname@example.org or find and join the Facebook group. Hemel Quakers can also talk to our representative, Suzanne Watts.
