Violence and hatred can never be the solution

Bishop Steven hosts faith and community leaders.

The Bishop of Oxford and Imam Monawar Hussain hosted faith and community leaders from across Oxfordshire on Monday 17 October. The group will meet regularly in the coming months to give a collective voice in promoting understanding, peace, and strong community relations across the area.

"We are horrified by the violence that we are seeing in lsrael and Palestine, and the suffering of ordinary people who have lost loved ones and who fear for their own lives and for friends and family members. We hold all the victims and their loved ones in our prayers.

"We stand together here in Oxford as religious and community leaders to say that we must continue the good work of community and relationship building that has taken place over many years.

"We support and encourage all those working to facilitate honest and respectful conversations and to strengthen the network of good relations, friendships and trust between our communities of which we in Oxford are so proud.

"Violence and hatred can never be the solution.”
