TOOWOOMBA residents will show their support for multi-faith and multi-cultural harmony at a Walk as One event.

The walk, on Saturday, May 2, has been organised by the Goodwill Committee of Toowoomba and will be hosted by St Luke's Anglican Church.

Goodwill Committee chairman Reverend Dr Jonathan Inkpin said the event would highlight "what a good thing it is to be part of our rich and diverse community, walking together without fear or discrimination."


"In the wake of the attack on the Toowoomba mosque it is even more vital to affirm our city's harmonious life."

The symbolic walk for peace is part of annual World Labyrinth Day, which brings together thousands of people across the globe, all walking together at 1pm.

St Luke's Reverend Penny Jones said the she was inspired to create the labyrinth, the parish's latest addition, after discovering its significance as a symbol of community peace and a walking meditation.
