On April 28, 2006 Christian Today reported, "Members of Leeds’ religious communities will join together in the first faith walk around the city with the hope of fostering stronger interfaith relations. The walk in the Hyde Park area of the city will promote greater respect as participants take in the city’s main places of worship, including the Hindu Temple in Alexandra Road, the All Hallows Church in Regents Terrace, and the Grand Mosque in Woodsley Road. Participants will be joined by Ann Castle, Deputy Lord Mayor of Leeds, as they learn more about the different faiths first-hand. Councillor Castle will give a talk at the Hindu Temple ahead of the walk on Saturday morning. Walkers will then join in a Hindu prayer and a talk on Hindu beliefs and practices before heading off to All Hallows and then finally the Grand Mosque for similar talks and presentations."
