Friendship links between places of worship

An increasing number of places of worship have ongoing and positive links with one or more nearby places of worship of other faiths. 


Open Door Days

Churches, gurdwaras, mandirs, mosques, synagogues, temples, viharas.  Buildings that are the heart of the UK’s different faith communities, with worship space and usually also with community space for lots of activities.

A number of local inter faith organisations hold inter faith ‘pilgrimages’, ‘peace walks’ and other walks where people of different faiths and beliefs walk together, often visiting places of worship along the way.


Inter faith engagement in social action

Inter faith activity comes in many shapes and sizes, from small meetings for dialogue to collaborative arts programmes; from educational activities to projects serving the local community.


Standing together

The UK has a strong pattern of inter faith relations overall. However, tensions and difficulties can arise for a number of reasons.
