Maha Shivaratri, a significant Hindu festival dedicated to Lord Shiva, holds a unique place in the rich tapestry of religious observances.

For us, while recognising the diverse ways people express their faith, Maha Shivaratri is an occasion to appreciate the spiritual devotion of Hindus and their commitment to divine worship.

We value the pursuit of connection with the divine and respect the various religious traditions that contribute to the rich mosaic of global spirituality.

During Maha Shivaratri, we extend our prayers for peace, understanding and mutual respect among people of all faiths, recognising the shared aspiration for a world where love and compassion prevail, guided by the teachings of Christ and the universal call to seek God’s presence in our lives.

But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but those who have faith and are saved. – Hebrews 10:39
