Join Croydon’s Interfaith bike ride and/or picnic in the park – 24 June 2018

The Faiths Together in Croydon (FTiC) annual picnic and bike ride will be held on June 24 in 2018 and everyone is invited!

This is Faiths Together in Croydon’s fourth inter-faith bike ride and picnic.

This cycle ride will start at three separate points across the borough and each route will visit one or more of our diverse sites of worship before joining a dedicated Big Get Together picnic in the Park Hill Park.

Everyone is welcome to take part in the interfaith bike ride or to join the interfaith picnic which starts at 2pm at Park Hill Park in central Croydon.

There will also be an opportunity to visit the Peace Garden, for those who wish to do so, created during the Croydon Festival of Peace running throughout the week prior to this.
