Calling all Buddhists in Dyfed and Powys - Dyfed-Powys Police interfaith event


Could you take part in this interfaith event being hosted by the Dyfed-Powys Police during interfaith week? If you can, please contact Constable Jo Thompson, Assistant Staff Officer, by email:

As part of Inter Faith week (13th - 20th November 2016) Dyfed-Powys Police is organising a day to celebrate the diversity of faiths in Wales.  The day will be titled ‘A Window on World Faiths’.  We have set aside Tuesday, 15th November 2016 for this event which will be held at the Strategic Command Centre at Police Headquarters in Carmarthen.  The day will start at 10:00am and finish around 3:00pm.

The purpose of the day is to explore the diversity of faiths that surround us.  It will be a terrific way for people from all faiths to learn from one another and celebrate the tremendous amount we have in common.

We envisage the day to be similar to a ‘Faith Fair’ where we hope to attract guests from all sectors of the diverse faith groups.  The fair will follow a ‘Window on World Faiths’ theme that will hopefully encompass music, food and artefacts that are meaningful to the communities we serve.  

We would be delighted to be able to work in partnership with your faith group.  Apart from the valuable experience that your members could bring to the day, it would be a great opportunity for us all to get to know each other and each other’s work. 

We would therefore like to invite five persons from your community to come along to participate in the day.
