Ramadan at Bangor Mosque: a portrait of a community

Bangor Mosque is the oldest contemporary mosque in North Wales, with a large and diverse group of worshippers drawn from more than 25 nations. What motivates them during the month of Ramadan, and what are the challenges of being an observant Muslim in this part of North Wales? In this programme, Mary Stallard spends time during this important religious season getting to know some of the members of the mosque community, over 400 of whom were present at the Eid celebrations.


The country is polarised over Brexit. The queue for the keys to Number Ten grows ever longer. And one of the most controversial presidents in US history is about to make his first state visit to the United Kingdom.

On All Things Considered this week Roy Jenkins and guests are discussing leadership. What do we want from our leaders? Not just politicians, but also those in charge in business, public services and the faith communities.

In All Things Considered this week Mary Stallard looks at some of the ways in which Christians are trying to address this issue. They range from the Bible Society's Open the Book initiative, (adults wearing tea-towels perform Bible stories for young children in school assemblies) to puppets and some sophisticated literary reworkings of old tales.
