“The ACC&C has been collaborating with our Muslim colleagues at Bluestar Intercultural Centre for over a decade to foster understanding and friendship in our increasingly pluralistic society.

“The theme for the evening is ‘Faith and Friendship Today’, and the evening will be one of fine food, conversation, music and bonding.
