This year Interfaith Week falls on 11th – 18th November 2018.
Inter Faith Week will usually begin on Remembrance Sunday, and run until the following Sunday. It is hoped that the additional Sunday will provide the opportunity for other weekend events to take place as well as those linked to Remembrance Sunday, this year the centenary anniversary of Armistice Day.
The three aims of the week:
- Strengthening good interfaith relations at all levels
- Increasing awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK, in particular celebrating and building on the contribution which their members make to their neighbourhoods and to wider society
- Increasing understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs
Anyone can take part in Inter Faith Week and hold Inter Faith Week events. Some of the many kinds of organisations who have participated in previous Weeks include:
- faith communities and their places of worship
- community and voluntary groups
- interfaith bodies
- youth groups
- schools and SACREs
- institutions of further and higher education
- local authorities and other public agencies
- sports organisations
- businesses and workplaces
