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:
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.
In appreciation of the selfless dedication shown by our front line workers, the Faith & Belief Forum in partnership with Birmingham Council of Faiths, EcoSikhUK, Hall Green Communities, Birmingham Progressive Synagogue, Birmingham Church of England and the Bahu Trust invite you to an interfaith service for our emergency services.
Join this virtual service in recognition and appreciation of the strong men and women who are selflessly taking action to save lives.
