Members of the Muslim and Jewish faiths, the United Reform Church, Methodist, Independent, Baptist and Anglican churches will all be represented at the meeting on 6th May, including the Archdeacon of Nottingham, the Ven Peter Hill and the Bishop of Sherwood, the Rt Revd Tony Porter.

The leaders including two bishops will join Police Commissioner, Paddy Tipping and the Chief Executive of One Nottingham at the home of Rabbi Moshe Perez.
