A multi-faith prayer space has opened on Greenwich Peninsula near to the O2.
The space was formally opened at the end of October by the Mayor of Greenwich. It exists to provide a quiet space for prayer as well as being used for regular worship events. Services are held weekly by Church of England, United Reform Church, Muslim and Baha'i worshippers.
The purpose built facility also includes an office, disabled toilet and ablutions room for foot washing.
The building is the result of an agreement between the developer, Greenwich Peninsula Regeneration Limited, and Greenwich Council. The local faith groups that use the building are contributing towards the ongoing cost of managing it.
The prayer space, which is open daily, is also home to chaplaincy services on the Peninsula which are provided by volunteers to local businesses and organisations.
Rev’d Malcolm Torry, Co-ordinating Chaplain of Greenwich Peninsula Chaplaincy, talks to Greenwich.co.uk about the new Prayer Space.
