The Sharakat Project is a community project based at St Paul's Church, Manningham, Bradford. It has grown from the church's vision to serve the local community in a way that fosters well being, includes the marginalised and encourages cross cultural and cross-faith relationships. It seeks to be a practical witness to the love of God in the community. The Anchor Foundation grant has enabled us to establish our Scones and Samosas cooking group and Knit together craft group which provide safe spaces for women of different faiths and cultures to meet and build friendships, reducing isolation and improving community cohesion.
