|Inside an English Christian Church|
Of course I'd like to cover the big religions and their festivals but also it'd be good to look at some of the lesser known branches and consider how they relate to people and their needs.
In West London we have many places of worship that are now used by faiths that they were not built for.
Diwali has just finished and I see that this is a festival for Hindus and it's about the victory of light over darkness and in modern times has become something of an excuse for consumer heavy behaviour (having said that the end of the festival is about giving and charity too).
Although mainly a Hindu occasion it's also significant for others who celebrate it like Sikhs, Buddhists and followers of Jainism
