Inter Faith Week took place for the first time in 2009 and was very successful, with a range of exciting and stimulating events taking place across England and Wales.

Since then Inter Faith Week has been organised every year, and usually takes place in England, Northern Ireland and Wales in the third week of November, beginning on a Sunday.

Inter Faith Week gives you the opportunity to:

strengthen good inter faith relations at all levels;

increase awarness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK, 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.

“How people of different faiths and beliefs interact and cooperate is of enormous importance in our society. Inter Faith Week is an opportunity for people to come together for inter faith dialogue, learning and action. It’s a time for extending existing bonds of cooperation and friendship and creating new ones. We hope that this year sees even wider circles of involvement and wish all taking part success in their events and projects.”

Rev Bob Fyffe and Vivian Wineman, IFN Co-Chairs
