Visit: SIKH: Gurudawara Sahib
Presented in association with the Wellington Interfaith Council
Sunday 23 May, 11:30 am - 1pm
In association with the Wellington Council of Faiths we now offer Members a third fascinating visit, this time to the Sikh Community who invites you to accompany us on a visit to their Gurudawara Sahib (temple) at 4 – 10 Vogel Street, Naenae, Lower Hutt.
In 2016 the largest Sikh temple (gurdwara) in the Lower North Island opened its doors in Naenae after relocating from Porirua. Sikhism is the fifth largest religion in the world, with about 25 million followers, and more than 750 people in Wellington identify as Sikh. ‘ A lot of Sikh people are migrants and it’s important for them to have a place to come to so not to get lost between the two cultures’.
This series provides us a superb opportunity to discover more about the many faiths held by Wellingtonians, with visits allowing us to learn about the diversity of people in the different places of worship. Each visit will include a short introduction to the key tenets of each faith.
NB: Please wear long sleeves and skirts/pants, and bring a scarf or bandana. Visitors are required to follow protocol at each site of worship – wearing head covering and removing shoes on entry.
