Spring Faith Festival:

The Spring Faith Festival, organised by The Centre for Reconciliation, University of Lincoln Multi-Faith Chaplaincy, Lincolnshire Faith Council, and Lincoln BIG, will welcome people from across Lincolnshire to a series of exhibitions, interfaith walks and trips, as well as a celebration of Lincolnshire’s diverse faiths through art and music. Held from the 13th to 16th March, the theme of the festival will be ‘Hope and Resilience in turbulent times’. Over the four days there will be a faith exhibition, in the Waterside shopping centre, demonstrating different faiths. Within the exhibition ‘the faith and diversity embroidery banner’ will be on display, showing the richness of Lincolnshire’s faith and cultural communities. Two trips are planned during this festival week - to the Holocaust Centre in Nottingham, and a Faith Awareness Day in Leicester. The trip to Leicester will include visiting the new Sikh statue, lunch at the Gurdwara, a Hindu Temple, Jain Temple and the Brahma Kumari Centre (with tea and coffee). The cost will be £20 per person. There will be a Faith Trail going on all week in Lincoln. This is an opportunity to answer some questions while visiting different places of worship from the Cathedral all the way to the Mosque. Thursday 16th will be the main festival day and will be held in the Engine Shed from 10am-8pm. Starting at 10 with an opening speech, throughout the day there will be performances and a programme of speakers/talks. There will be a marketplace with local businesses where there will be things for sale. There will be a food court area where food will be available for purchase, a quiet space, and a craft corner. We hope to have a labyrinth outside. In the evening 4-8pm there will be workshops like yoga, meditation, mandala making, and henna painting. There will be food available. 6-8 pm there will be some closing speeches from key people and then day will end with interfaith prayers and readings.
