Love your neighbour!

Love your neighbour!Balsall Heath is an area which is around 80% Muslim, and many of us have a number of Muslim friends and neighbours.

On February 13th, the day before Valentine’s day, the Balsall Heath Community Group ran two events, one in the day for the women, and one in the evening for the men, which we invited our christian and non-christian friends along to. We wanted these events to be non-threatening, and the kind of events that would appeal to eastern and western cultures.

The men had a film night in one of our homes; watching the latest Batman film, as well as chatting and getting to know each other better. Everybody brought sweets and snacks to share, and a good time was had by all.

Love your neighbours!The women met up in one of our homes, chatting and sharing food over lunch time. While doing some basic crafts, we had the opportunity to share about the different types of love. The love between a husband and wife, but also the love for friends and God’s love for us too.

We do a number of these type of events throughout the year.

We’ll be praying with you on Monday 8th April at the next prayer.
