Experience and celebrate diverse places of worship in the City of Gosnells at Spring Day, on Saturday 10 September.

Mayor Terresa Lynes said local places of worship had been invited to take part in Spring Day in the spirit of creating harmony and acceptance, while dispelling myths and misconceptions, and members of the community were encouraged to visit a variety of venues on the day.

“Our City is one of the most culturally diverse local governments in Western Australia and this event will allow places of worship to open their doors to the wider community, so people can learn about different beliefs and practices,” she said.

“Visitors will be able to tour facilities, chat with members and view presentations, demonstrations or performances, and some places of worship are offering light refreshments.”

Members of the community can travel independently to places of worship, or free shuttle buses will take visitors to a selection of places of worship, departing from the Civic Centre at 2120 Albany Highway, Gosnells, at 10am sharp. Passengers are encouraged to arrive by 9.45am to avoid disappointment.

Registrations for the shuttle buses can be made by emailing mayor@gosnells.wa.gov.au or phoning 9397 3000.

Over 15 places of worship will be open from 10am to 3pm on the day, and visitors will receive a Spring Day Passport and have the opportunity to enter a free draw for the chance to win an iPad.

Spring Day Passports will be available on the buses and at the participating places of worship.
