On 4th December, RfPUK met with representatives from the China Committee on Religion and Peace (CCRP). CCRP is a non-profit national organisation consisting of representatives from major religions in China, most of them are also members of the national committee of Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC). CCRP’s objectives include the promotion of friendship, peace, development and cooperation, unity and harmony among religious groups. The Committee also encourages exchanges and cooperation with religious circles in all countries and has established channel of communication with national, regional as well as international RfP aiming to strive for world peace and common prosperity.
The delegation consisted of representatives from the Buddihist, Taoist and Catholic faiths. RfPUK members took turns to highlight the work of our national chapter, and our visitors also spoke extensively on the present situation of various faiths in China, the collaboration between faith groups and the possibility of future development with RfPUK. During the visit, the delegation was received by the Revd David Peebles at St George’s Bloomsbury (Anglican), Dr Dov Softi, Head of Religious School at the Liberal Jewish Synagogue, and Ms Jayde Russell at the London Central Mosque at Regents Park. The delegation appreciated the chance to meet with London faith groups and welcomes RfPUK to visit CCRP in Beijing.
