Norwich InterFaith Link is a meeting point for people of diverse religions, cultures and communities, to share experiences and beliefs. In new friendships and shared concerns, bonds of trust are born. We try to meet at least eleven times a year, for talks on challenging topics, visits and discussions on issues of common concern.

Holy Land Talks

Sunday 6th October at 3:30 onwards

In the Barn at Hole Farm, Hempstead

Sheikh Ibrahim Mogra
Rabbi Natan Levy
Revd Dr Yazid Said

The talk is, we feel, a unique opportunity to engage with reflections on the commandments to love God and love our neighbour in the Holy Land from a Rabbi, an Iman, and a priest.

The speakers are:
• Sheikh Ibrahim Mogra is a leading Iman in the United Kingdom. He is a lecturer and a member of the Muslim Council of Britain. He has travelled numerous times to the Holy Land many times as part of an inter-faith pilgrimage.

• Rabbi Natan Levy is Head of Operations for Faiths Forum for London. He was environmental liaison to the former Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks, interfaith Consultant to the Board of Deputies of British Jews from 2013 to 2017, and a University Chaplain.

• Revd Dr Yazid Said, is an Anglican priest, from Nazareth. He currently lectures in Islam at Liverpool Hope University. He studied Classical Arabic and English Literature in Jerusalem, and Christian theology at the University of Cambridge.

We will also be joined by Rt Revd David Gillett, Interfaith Adviser for the Diocese of Norwich, who will conclude the discussions.

We have organised the discussion with our parish priest and rector, Revd David Longe. David was chaplain to the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem, the Most Revd Suheil Dawani from 2015 to 2018, where he gained experience in inter-faith relationships and dialogue. He became Rector of the Matlaske Benefice in 2018.

We thought this might be of interest to your community and we would be delighted to welcome any of you who would like to join us. The ticket costs £15 and includes traditional afternoon tea before the talks and drinks afterwards. Any proceeds will be going towards helping young people and families in the Matlaske Benefice and charities selected by each speaker.
