A team from Abu Huraira Mosque in Beeston has taken it upon themselves to clean the area around the adjacent Holy Spirit Church on Tempest Road.
The church has been made ‘redundant’ and the Church of England are in the process of selling the building. In the meantime the small garden, which houses a war memorial, has become overgrown and the site has attracted litter.

Noor Zaman, who organised the clean up, commented:
“We are neighbours to the church and as it says in both the Bible and the Quran: neighbours should look after one another.”

How great to read about the rubbish cleared away at Holy Spirit Church. The names of the young men on the war memorial at the church can be found online at https://www.leeds-united-in-ww1.org/. The ages of these young men who made the ultimate sacrifice are from age 17 to 31.
Thanks to our Muslim friends for cleaning around Holy Spirit Church. Because of the lock down the usual people who should be keeping an eye on the church are not able to do so. Thank you for your care.
Many thanks to the team from Abu Haraira Mosque, who must have worked very hard.
