On Wednesday 21 September from 10 am to 12 noon, Wantage Methodist Chapel will be open to mark the United Nations International Day of Peace. Images, words and music will be projected in the Chapel to mark the day. The day was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981. In 2002 the General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace. Peace Day has grown to include millions of people in all parts of the world, and each year events are organized to commemorate and celebrate the day.
This year the theme is "End Racism : Build Peace". We invite you to join the efforts of the United Nations as we work towards a world free of racism and racial discrimination. A world where compassion and empathy overcome suspicion and hatred. A world that we can truly be proud of.
Anyone welcome to drop into Wantage Methodist Chapel between 10 am to 12 noon.
