Breaking the Fast Together: Building Harmony Virtual Iftar

Wednesday 13 May 2020, 4.50-5.40pm

Muslims across the world have entered Ramadan, a month dedicated to fasting, prayer and acts of charity. 

Normally during Ramadan in Australia, different parts of the Uniting Church host or take part in Iftar meals with Muslim friends and partners across the country as a way of celebrating our shared humanity and friendship. This year was to be the seventh annual Building Harmony Iftar Meal jointly hosted by the Uniting Church Assembly, NSW/ACT Synod, Uniting (NSW/ACT) and Muslim partners, the Affinity Intercultural Foundation.

This year, the Building Harmony Iftar will go virtual on Wednesday 13 May from 4.50pm, and everyone is invited to join. 

For more details and how to register

The Iftar will be live-streamed on the UCA Assembly Facebook page

A Contemplative Prayer Gathering for those who wish to meet the Beloved in their home sacred space.

Ready for each Wednesday evening, participants will be emailed, in advance, a guided meditation to accompany their contemplative practice.  To receive these offerings in your inbox, email Debbie at Merthyr Road Uniting Church, New Farm, QLD:
