Sunday 12 – Sunday 19 November

Inter Faith Week 2017

Inter Faith Week is an incredibly important time in the year for inter faith learning, interaction, cooperation and celebration. It allows communities to highlight the achievements of local inter faith and faith based groups, and strengthen good inter faith relations at all levels.

Having a week that is dedicated to inter faith activity helps inter faith initiatives to reach a wider audience, so that more people are made aware of the importance of this vital work, and are able to participate in it.

This year, Inter Faith Week will take place from Sunday 12 to Sunday 19 November. Anyone can take part in the Week and hold events themselves. Our Inter Faith Week website at http://www.interfaithweek.org has all the information you need, as well as ideas and inspiration for how you can get involved.
