Sunday 17 October
Day of Compassion - Brighton and Hove Interfaith Contact Group
Brighton and Hove Interfaith Contact Group, which serves as Chaplain to the Mayor of Brighton, is organising a Day of Compassion on Sunday 17 October to honour the losses in Brighton and beyond resulting from the pandemic. At the heart of the Day will be a Service of Compassion which will be held in the The Brighton Dome at 4pm. The Mayor, MPs and the people of Brighton & Hove will gather and share memories, music, narratives, films and uplifting thoughts. Tickets are free and can be booked at https://brightondome.org/event/28603/a_service_of_compassion/. In other parts of the City other initiatives will take place: from 11am to 2pm, the Brighton Dome Foyer will provide a place for reflection with stalls from a variety of support, social and charity groups. Visitors to the town centre will also find peace and meditation opportunities in The Friends' Meeting House, an inspired workshop in the Fabrica Art Gallery in the morning, a Death Cafe and singing at The Unitarian Church... and there will also be an exhibition in support of the The Day of Compassion in the Jubilee Library from 11 to 24 October.
