On Sunday the 1st of December, Finchley and Golders Green MP, Mike Freer, attended the Jain Centre in Colindale, as part of their Christmas festivities. The event was to celebrate the work of the Jain Network in fostering community cohesion across Barnet, as well as to discuss the opening of their new centre on Colindale Avenue.
Commenting after the event, Mike said “The Jain Network is an excellent example of people of all backgrounds and faiths, joining together in the interests of community engagement. Barnet is a diverse borough and we can be rightly proud of that”.
The Jain Network holds many interfaith events and is an active member of the Barnet Multi Faith Forum. Although strictly speaking a Hindu organisation, the Network has a strong track record of engaging with the wider community and facilitating discussions between Barnet’s many religious groups.
