Community prays for the Queen’s Jubliee

Alumwell residents are set to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a multi-faith, multi-cultural, fun day giving thanks for her 60 years of service.

Members of Jamia Mosque and parishioners from St John’s Church will hold joint prayers at the community centre on Scarborough Road, Walsall to mark the special day.

There will be live music, a performance by children from the local Muslim community, stalls to buy Jubilee memorabilia, fun activities for youngsters and food from around the world.

The event begins at 12 noon on June 4th and St John’s Vicar, the Reverend Gennie Evans, said the event is open to people of all faiths and none.

She said: “It‘s going to be a great day when everyone in Alumwell can give thanks and celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.  As a community we want to show our appreciation of her service and mark her special role as the head of the commonwealth, where she represents people of numerous faiths and of course, none.  The community centre is wheelchair accessible and we encourage everyone to join us in what is going to be a marvellous, fun day.”
