Derby Faith Trails
Danny is associated with the Open Centre in Derby in a voluntary capacity. An impressive organisation promoting understanding and respect between different communities.

As part of their work they have been delivering Faith Tours for many years. These entail visits to places of worship such as Hindu Temples, Mosques, Sikh Gurdwaras, Synagogues, Anglican, Baptist and Catholic churches. Derby Open Centre has no affiliation with any specific faith based group.

If your group would be interested in a Faith Trail, contact the Open Centre direct for details. or email
