An initiative of the Inter Faith Network, the annual celebration of Inter Faith Week highlights all expressions of interfaith, beginning on Remembrance Sunday. Despite the pandemic, faith-related organisations have continued to be bright lights of collaboration in 2020.

Inter Faith Week’s aims are to:

  • Strengthen good inter faith relations at all levels
  • Increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK, in particular celebrating and building on the contribution which their members make to their neighbourhoods and to wider society
  • Increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs

There is a wide range of events to choose from, such as services, webinars in the response to the pandemic, theological discussions, art workshops, and more. Many already moved their events for this week online – including F&BF!

So far, there are 252 interfaith activities national and regional listed on the Inter Faith Week website you can join in. Below are a few of our own events – please share these with your networks, and hopefully see you (virtually) there!

 

For our third annual celebration of National Interfaith Week, the Faith & Belief Forum in collaboration with LGBTQ+/Faith partners are hosting an online space for LGBTQ+ people from different faiths, beliefs, and backgrounds to reflect, share, and be together.

Hear from speakers from different faith backgrounds about how they have experienced the last few months, how community and spiritual life has been different, and what has brought them strength during challenging times. Optional breakout discussions will enable further sharing and connection. You can read reflections on last year’s event here.

Date: 11th November 2020
Time: 6.30-7.30pm
