High Sheriffs Chaplain

Departing from tradition, Kurshida will be supported by a Multi-Faith Chaplaincy drawn from her Islamic faith and the Christian, Jewish, Bahai, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist faiths.  This is to further her quest to create understanding between communities and to work together for the good of humanity. Her passion for supporting and building resilient and cohesive communities is inspired by her faith:

My seven Chaplains are:

Imam Shehzad Hussain, Central Jamia Mosque (Wolverton); Family Liaison Officer, HMP Woodhill

Rev George Mwaura, URC Minister, Church of Christ the Cornerstone

Frances Gordon, Milton Keynes and District Reform Synagogue

Mr Tarsem Singh Ubhi, Ramgarhia Sabha Sikh Temple, Kiln Farm Gurdwara; Milton Keynes Sikhs

Glen O’Halloran, Milton Keynes Peace Pagoda

Roya Azordegan, Bahai Faith

Suresh Nesaratnam, Milton Keynes Murugan Temple

High Sheriffs' Cadet

I am not having cadets but working with students from the two colleges in my county:  HIGH SHERIFF COLLEGE CHAMPIONS is a new addition to enable Kurshida to work with young people drawn from Milton Keynes College and Bucks College Group to provide opportunities for them to showcase their skills.  Kurshida hopes to learn from the young people so that she can better understand the issues faced by them within the County, as well as provide an opportunity to give voice to young people to empower and nurture their development.
