Dear Mu'mineen

Salamun alaykum,

Together with the Portsmouth Cathedral it has been a tradition in our community to have joint Annual Muslim Christian Evening on Christmas occasion . It is a prominent event annually undertaken by Wessex Jamaat in our Interfaith programmes.

This annual gathering will take place InshAllah on Tuesday 15th January, 2019 from 7:00 pm at the Portsmouth Cathedral; located at St Thomas's Street, Old Portsmouth, PO1 2HA.

Mu'mineen are requested to attend in large numbers and bring a vegetarian dish to share with friends at the Cathedral.

The Annual Muslim Christian Gathering, this year will be the 24th instant since the first meeting in 1994. Much has been achieved over these more than twenty years, not least a strong bond of friendship between the Cathedral and Wessex Jamaat.

The purposes of this programme are as follows:
1. Share a common understanding of Islam with people from the local community
2. Seek out opportunities for communicating the message of Islam and the Ahlulbayt (AS) through networking.
3. Demonstrate through our presence the importance Islam gives to building of relationships with the Neighbour.

The programme for the evening will include recitations from the Bible, Noble Qur'an and address from the two faith communities. This will be followed by craft activity and opportunity for conversations.

Your attendance will strengthen understanding in the community, help build relationships across faiths and contribute towards tableegh.

Looking forward to your attendance, InshaAllah.

With salams andduas,
