One World is a celebration of the many communities and faiths of Oxfordshire and is needed more than ever in these challenging times. Our theme 'Light in the Darkness' will bring hope as well as opportunities for reflection through a series of talks, performances, and activities. Events will take place on the last Sunday of each month, beginning in November.

We will start off our launch event with an introduction from special guests, followed by a range of family-friendly events.
