An Evening of Reflection

Faith in Ipswich


Tuesday, 18th February 2020

6.30pm - 8.30pm

Mayor’s Parlour,

Ipswich Town Hall, Ipswich, IP1 1DH


Faith in Ipswich is the first evening of reflection being organised by Ipswich Faith and Community Forum (IFCF) in partnership with Ipswich Mayor’s Office. It will endeavour to explore the presence of some of the world Religions and Beliefs in Ipswich and how they can contribute to tackling the problems facing us in 2020 and beyond - in law and order, education, politics, social support, environmental concerns and so forth.

A panel of representatives from local religious and philosophical traditions, and civic institutions of the Town will explore ideas and challenges raised by local residents. Members of the public are invited to attend and to also raise questions for the religious representative and the civic institutions alike, both ahead of time by email and on the night itself.

The aim is to establish productive routes by which the various faith communities might contribute towards making the town a better place to live in not only for their own members but for everyone.

If you would like to attend and or send in a question for the panel, please email the Chair of the Panel – Robin Herne (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) by no later than 12th February. 


The event will be opened and closed by the Mayor of Ipswich, Councillor Jan Parry

Refreshments will be provided

N.B. The following representatives have agreed to be part of the Panel:

  • Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Humanism
  • The Constabulary, Borough Council, voluntary and health sectors.
