THE Archbishop of Canterbury’s cricket team is appearing in an interfaith festival at the end of this month.
Over two days, 27 and 28 August, they will play a 20/20 tournament against three other teams: Maccabi Vale (Jewish), the Afghan Refugee cricket team (Muslim and Sikh), and Gurdwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha (Sikh). All games will be played at the Rowley Lane Sports Ground in Hertfordshire (EN5 3HW), and all are welcome. There will be an evening of fellowship and interfaith dialogue on Monday.

The tournament is the first of an annual Festival of Unity, based on the idea that, through sport, people of different faiths can grow in fellowship and celebrate what can be done together. The evening event will focus on the experience of refugees and those displaced by war and famine.
