The Dialogue between Pinner Churches and Synagogues started in 1989. Robin Woolf was part of the original steering group. The Harrow Central Mosque joined the Dialogue in 2002. The Forum is now led by Jenny Nemko (Pinner United Synagogue) and Katherine Pinching (St John the Baptist Church, Pinner).
In 2021 we agreed to widen our remit to include all faiths in order to reflect the many more faiths practised in Pinner and District since we began 32 years ago.
The aims of the Forum are to promote understanding and respect and to establish and maintain good relations between the local Faith Communities.
Forum meetings explore topics of mutual religious interest often introduced by knowledgeable speakers followed by discussion in small groups and/or a question and answer session.
Essential requirements include treating all concerned with respect whilst retaining freedom within the law to express convictions and beliefs in an honest, sensitive and straightforward way without criticising one another’s Faith beliefs or ritual practices.
Care is and must always be taken to avoid conflict and violence in our relationships.
If you would like to join our steering group and/or know of anyone of any faith who would like to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
