The Bradford Faith Trail returns on Saturday 5th March 2022
Have you ever wondered what’s in a church, masjid, mandir or gurdwara?
The Bradford Faith Trail offers a unique opportunity to discover a little bit about Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Christian (Roman Catholic and Church of England) faith buildings; about the faiths within them; and how they link into Bradford’s local community culture and faith heritage.
The Bradford Faith Trail takes in five fascinating places of worship. You can visit as many places of worship as you like – each place of worship will be open for set times and you will be shown round by experienced guides who are there to answer your questions, and to make your visit more informative and enjoyable. You will then be accompanied to the next venue.
The Faith Trail takes place on the first Saturday of the month from March – October and can be walked on foot in a day. The whole trail starts at 10am at St Peter’s Roman Catholic Church and finishes at approximately 3:45pm at Bradford Cathedral.
The Trail begins at St. Peter’s RC Church at the top of Leeds Road at 10am and works its way down Leeds Road, stopping at the Abu Bakar Masjid, the Shree Lakshmi Narayan Hindu Temple and the Guru Gobind Singh Ji Gurdwara, where everybody enjoys a langar (vegetarian lunch). It finishes around 3:45pm after a tour of Bradford Cathedral and refreshments.
Maggie Myers, Director of Education and Visitors at Bradford Cathedral, who coordinates the Faith Trail on behalf of all of the places of worship involved, says:
“It is wonderful to be able to offer a March-October monthly Faith Trail once again, after the disruption of the last few years. The Bradford Faith Trail is a truly unique event and one that we encourage everybody in this area and beyond to experience.
“There are so many faith communities living side by side in this small area of Bradford and the Faith Trail offers the chance to look beyond the doors, to see what is inside, to meet members of the communities, to hear a little of what goes on, to ask questions and to spend a fascinating day with people of all faiths and none. “
The Bradford Cathedral Faith Trail returns March – October 2022, starting on Saturday 5th March at St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, Leeds Road, at 10am.
