Leaders of Chorley’s faith communities have shared views on the role of faith in the community with prominent politicians. Representatives of local places of worship and faith schools enjoyed a roundtable discussion with Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, Minister of State for Faith and Communities, at the Chorley United Reformed Church on Friday. The meeting was organised by Rob Loughenbury, Conservative candidate for Chorley for the next general election.
Rob Loughenbury said:
“Faith groups bind our community together and do invaluable work with our most vulnerable neighbours. Baroness Warsi is a champion of the positive role of religion in public life and it is fantastic that she has visited Chorley to listen to our local faith leaders.
“Our roundtable meeting was very well attended and I look forward to building upon the conversations we have started. I promise to do everything I can to support the important work of faith groups in our community.”
