How to get involved
Inter Faith Week is from 12th - 19th November 2017
, so this is a great time to get involved in an event or activity that draws people of different faiths together.
Inter Faith Week:
Highlights the good work done by local faith, inter faith and faith-based groups and organisations
Draws new people into inter faith learning and cooperation
Enables greater interaction between people of different backgrounds
Helps develop integrated and neighbourly communities
Celebrates diversity and commonality
Opens new possibilities for partnership
The Inter Faith Network provides details of all the events that are taking place around the country. There were over 500 in total last year: take a look at the map and find an event near you.
Alternatively, you and a person of another faith, or your church and another faith community could plan an event or activity for the week. The Inter Faith Network have produced a short guide which is packed with suggestions for marking the Week and examples and illustrations drawn from the many successful activities held for the Week to date. It also includes practical guidance and links to further information. Download your copy of the toolkit here.
Here is a prayer
that you may like to use personally or with your church during the week.
I hope you have a great Inter Faith week, meeting people and making new contacts and friends.
Moderator of the Baptist Inter Faith Working Group
