Inter Faith Week 13th - 20th November 2016

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

Some ideas to think about and try to arrange:

  • If you have a website, include some information about Inter Faith Week and a link to the national website
  • Check with your local radio station or tv channel if they are running a feature on the Week and offer to provide someone for interview
  • Hold a special inter faith event for a particular constituency such as ‘women of faith’
  • Partner with other local faith communities to run a social action project, perhaps working with a local charity or branch of a national charity or connecting to Mitzvah Day
  • Offer time, in partnership with a local inter faith group or SACRE, to take part in educational events in local schools during the Week
  • Open the doors of your place of worship to the public as part of an ‘open door day’ and invite them inside for a short tour to learn about what happens inside your worship centre, and begin to build understanding of your community
  • Work with your local inter faith body on a joint event
  • If your faith community has a weekly sermon, include an inter faith theme in this
  • Host a dialogue event at your place of worship or community centre and invite members of other local faith communities to take part
  • Encourage members of your faith community to take part in Inter Faith Week events being run locally

These are only some ideas, there is plenty you could do. Why not get involved.
