Apologies, we have not had time to do a full newsletter this month as we have been busy planning and sorting the events for Interfaith Week in November and also the York Interfaith Group programme for 2020.
This is why we really need more people to help out with all the jobs that we need to do, so if you would like to offer to do a newsletter one month we would love to hear from you.

July 2019 - Please Note
On July 2nd there will be no meeting in York as we are going on a visit to the Sikh Gurdwara in Leeds, LS11 6DP. We are due to be at the Gurudwara by 6.15 for the visit to start at 6.30. We will be leaving not long after 8pm to allow plenty of time for people to travel back to York in time for any buses they have to catch. Lifts and a minibus have been arranged for all those who informed Avtar that they wanted to attend as those at the Gurudwara needed to know numbers for food that they are going to prepare for the visitors. Please do let him know if you are now not able to go on the visit so that those organising transport do not waste time waiting for anyone.
For those going to the Gurudwara please remember to dress modestly and remember that no shoes are allowed inside the prayer hall itself. You will also have to wear a head covering (scarf, bandana or handkerchief). Head coverings for those who forget them are usually provided. They normally sit on the floor in the prayer hall but there are seats at the back for those who need them. Footwear is allowed in all other areas of the Gurudwara.
Next YIG Meeting
The next meeting in the Hudson Room at the City of York Council, West Offices will be on August 6th at 7.30pm. This is our Annual Planning Meeting where we discuss ideas for York Interfaith Week in November and also put forward ideas for the YIG 2020 programme. If you have ideas that you want to be considered during either of these two programmes please do join us from 7.30 onwards. We are also going to be sharing some simple vegetarian finger food during the evening, so please do bring something along to share with others. Please note that there are no kitchen facilities at the venue and also no cutlery hence the need for it to be 'finger food' only. If for any reason you can't attend then please send your thoughts and ideas to someone who is going along so that they can be included.

April 2019 - Events in Sri Lanka
We are deeply saddened by the events in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, even more so, as it was the Holiest Day in the Christian Calendar. Once again innocent lives have been lost, families broken and divisions created by the horrific acts of minority, idealistic, groups.
We offer the prayers and thoughts from all members of the Committee.
