Bristol Diverse Doors Open Day 2017 is taking place on Sunday 26th February from 10.30am – 4.30pm.
This year 14 places of worship are opening their doors. In addition, 6 of the 14 venues will form a designated ‘Faith Trail’, each representing a different faith. At each of these six core venues there will be an opportunity to learn about that particular faith and to ask questions.
