Lambeth Cyclists Architecture Ride 27 October 2013: Architecture, faith and community

This Sunday, 27 October 2013, join us for our next leisurely architecture ride looking at the religious architecture of London.

East London Mosque Whitechapel on

This ride will explore the architecture of religious buildings as represented by some of the major faiths of London’s diverse communities.

We will explore how religious traditions and beliefs find expression in the architecture of church, synagogue,  mosque and temple. Some of the places of worship have been converted from their original use, reflecting successive waves of migration, carrying the religious symbols and customs of new ethnic groups which in contrasting styles bring together materiality with spirituality.

Feldgate St Synagogue on

Sunday 27 October 2013
Meet in the Tibetan Peace Garden at the  Imperial War Museum, Lambeth Road, London SE1 6HZ at 10.45am for an 11am start (remember clocks go back an hour the night before).

Lunch will be in Brick Lane and the ride will end at approximately 4pm.

We plan to visit Sandys Row Synagogue which asks for a small donation from visitors.

The ride will be led by John Heyderman and Tessa Wright (tel 07949 785258).

No need to book, just turn up on the day with a roadworthy bike!
