Near Neighbours in Waltham Forest
Archbishop Rowan Williams will visit a Near Neighbours project in Waltham Forest, north-east London. The Archbishop will meet members of St Andrew's Parish before going to the Shri Vallabha Nidhi Hindu Temple to learn about local projects taking place as part of the Near Neighbours programme.
Near Neighbours works in areas where communities are diverse. The programme helps people from different faiths get to know each other better, and encourages people of different faiths or of no faith to come together for initiatives that improve their local neighbourhood. Near Neighbours is a government-funded project run through the Church Urban Fund.
