They all worked together to help people connect with their own vision of spirituality. On offer this year were card readings from the Jesus Deck, healing, aura work and open discussions on all Faiths.

Andrew Ramage, Pastor of MCC Brighton and organiser of the interfaith corner, said: “This is the first event I have been at where these diverse faiths have come together in one place and worked together, supporting each other to reach out to the community, it was incredible.”

“I have not seen any other event where leaders from Paganism, Judaism, Christianity, Spiritualism and Wicca have all joined in a single endeavour. It really gives me hope for the future, after all only by understanding each other can we get past perceived differences. I look forward to future joint ventures.”
