Chronicle covers 'World Peace' at Knop Law

15th December 2014

Adapted from the Evening Chronicle Dec 16th 2014:

Religious leaders and pupils from our school - amongst others - will come together for what is believed to be the country’s first ‘chain of peace’ once a month.

Around 30 churches, mosques, Hindu and Sikh temples linking the city’s east and west ends, have agreed to dedicate a service or prayer meeting every four weeks to mark the message of peace.

The agreement is the idea of Dr Hari Shukla, who hopes different centres of faith will share ideas with each other and encourage local schools to get involved in the initiative.

At its launch on Monday at the Church of the Holy Nativity in Chapel House, Dr Shukla was joined by acting Bishop of Newcastle, Frank White, Bishop Seamus Cunningham, Catholic Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle, and Reverend Leo Osborne, chair of the Newcastle District of the Methodist Church.

Schoolchildren from Knop Law School and Mile Castle School were also involved and the Reverend Juliet Stephenson gave an address to the congregation.
