Interfaith Dialogue Group, 13/2 7.30pm - 9.00pm
The Right Reverend Nick Baines, Bishop of Bradford, know as the 'blogging bishop', and Judith Hayman, journalist with the Jewish Chronicle, will be making their way to MediaCityUk for The Anchor's quarterly Interfaith Dialogue Group to join Bishop Chris Edmondson, Bishop of Bolton.
Salford Interfaith Network successful launch in Spetember 2011 at Salford University's new building on MediaCityUK brough a whole new wave of life to interfaith work in Salford, and the Dialogue group is just one of the events supported by it.
Every quarter, two leading faith community representatives are interviewed by a local faith leader, followed by an open floor for questions as well as time to meet the speakers over refreshments.
In September we were lucky enough to have Aziz Rashid, Head of News for BBC North, and Tommy Nagra, Head of Television for BBC Religion and Ethics who gave a wonderful account of how they see faith and the media interacting from a 'secular' news perspective in contrast from within a specialised faith department.
This month we hope to hear how two people of faith interact with the wider media as well as a specialised faith-based newspaper.
