COMMUNITIES NIGHT: ‘A Night of Hospitality’

Friday 4 December

6.00 pm onward

The religious and spiritual communities of Melbourne are pleased to offer this ‘Night of Hospitality’ to people of all faiths and spiritual traditions from around the world. This occasion to come together and share the warmth and welcome of Melbourne and its religious and spiritual communities is a special feature of the Parliament.

Almost all the other Parliament activities involve direct interfaith engagement. The Communities Night provides the only formal opportunity for people from around the world from a single faith or spiritual tradition to come together. It is hoped that this experience will deeply enrich everyone’s lives as they share together in this ‘Night of Hospitality’.

Upon registration participants will receive specifi c information and details of the Communities Night they will be attending. All enquiries regarding Communities Night should be directed to the Communities Night Table located in the Melbourne Convention Centre Foyer.
