Our desire is to bring together teenagers from different faiths and cultures to build friendships, explore faith and change lives.
THE FEAST WELCOMES A NEW PATRON
We are delighted that Jehangir Malik has accepted our invitation to become patron for The Feast. Jehangir has many years’ experience of youth work and interfaith engagement and brings a wealth of knowledge and wisdom and so we are really excited that he is joining our other patrons in supporting the work of The Feast. At a time when we are kept apart physically we look forward to working with Jehangir as we explore new ways of connecting with young people and plan for future events and activities.

So it seemed only fitting for this, our last ‘10 Years & 10 Stories’ reflections, to ask Andrew how The Feast has personally impacted him.

In faith, we
a transformed world, in which all people are confident in their beliefs and identity, embrace diversity and able to flourish alongside one another in peaceful, loving and inclusive communities.
Young people are
The Feast believes young people are the game changers to build such a transformed world. We are a faith-based, youth-centred movement which encourages young people to be resilient and confident in their beliefs and identity, able to build meaningful friendships with people who are different from themselves, able to honestly and respectfully discuss beliefs and challenging issues and are committed to living well with their neighbours as peacemakers.
