Peace Vigil (6 August 2015)
On a beautifully sunny afternoon in August 2015, over fifty of us gathered on College Green in Bristol to Stand Together for Peace. The Bristol Multi-faith Forum had organised this Peace Vigil in light of recent events in Tunisia, France, Kuwait and across the Middle East, and ten years on from the events of 7/7. We were joined by The Mayor, The Lord Mayor, High Sherriff and Police Commissioner, as well as representatives from various faith communities across the City, who all shared a few words and prayers - and a one minute silence was observed. It was a truly beautiful day in all senses. For a full list of all those who spoke at the event please see our website: http://bristolmultifaithforum.org.uk/peace-vigil/
