St Edburgha’s Church Hall in Yardley hosted a ‘Taste Ramadan’ evening on 2 June.

It was described as a “community iftar meal” to “share food and share friendship” – but for men only.

The iftar was led by Qamar Abbas, president of UK Islamic Mission Solihull, who said: “This is the first community iftar we have held in a church rather than a mosque and the first one we have opened up to the public.”

The Birmingham Mail described it as an interfaith event, and representatives of a Baptist church, a C of E church and a Roman Catholic church attended.
