Inter Faith Week 2017 will take place from Sunday 12 – Sunday 19 November, focusing on good relationships and working partnerships between people of different faiths and beliefs.
Events will be held across the UK to bring people together to celebrate and learn. By doing so, Inter Faith Week helps build community relationships. It celebrates diversity as well as common beliefs, therefore increasing understanding between people of different religious and non-religious beliefs.
The Week highlights the work done by local faith, inter faith and faith-based groups and organisations that take place all year round. It celebrates the contribution their members make to their neighbourhoods and to wider society. And it helps create new connections and opportunities.
Events taking place around the country include talks, remembrance days, art workshops, lunches and social events. In the Birmingham Diocese there will be cycling events, film nights, lunches, peace festivals and more.
