Online events to mark InterFaith Week

Sunday 8 to Sunday 15 November inclusive is InterFaith Week. IFW aims to strengthen good inter-faith relationships at every level, to increase awareness of the different faith communities in the UK and to increase understanding between people of religious (and non-religious) beliefs. To mark InterFaith Week, the Birmingham Council of Faiths has organised a whole series of online events, for which information can be found at THIS WEBSITE.

On Sunday evening (8 November) Birmingham’s Jews and Quakers will meet online to learn more about each others’ respective faiths, with special reference to the impact of their faiths on the issues of social welfare, justice and the environment. The online gathering will run from 5.30pm to 7.00pm. Register to attend by e-mailing interfaith@centralenglandquakers.org.uk or jewishbirmingham@talktalk.net

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham’s ‘Commission for Interreligious Dialogue’ has organised a series of meetings entitled ‘Dare to hope.’ The meetings will take place via Zoom on Thursdays 12, 29 and 26 November, beginning at 7.30pm on each occasion. Speakers from different faith backgrounds will share how Covid-19 has affected them and the members of their faith community. Find more information on the Commission for Inter-religious Dialogue Facebook page HERE. To register to attend the meetings, e-mail interreligdialogue@rcaob.org.uk.
