A selection of large photographs has gone on display showing off the many varied faiths within the City of London.

Faith in the City of London, showcases the work of photographer Niki Gorick, and includes weddings, communions, evangelical bible studies, Livery company carol services, Muslim worship, and Afghan music.

There are also spaces that are shared between faiths, there’s no gurdwara temple in the Square Mile, so the Sikh community use a Bedouin Tent inside St Ethelburga’s church.

Some are put to non-faith use, such as fitness exercises, and churches have long offered tea at lunchtimes, some rather more grandly than others.

There are also a few hints in the text of events that might be worth looking out for when society returns to normal — I certainly had no idea there’s an easter egg rolling even on Fleet Street.

The exhibition is a window into a world that’s public to those of faith, but hidden from us who are faithless.

The exhibition is in Paternoster Square until 28th October, before transferring to Aldgate Square between 29th October and 26th November.

The exhibition complements Niki Gorick’s book, also entitled Faith in the City of London, which was published by Unicorn earlier this year.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
