Inter Faith Week (England & Wales)
An event every year that begins at 12:00am on day 11 of November, repeating indefinitely
Second week in November: Aims to strengthen inter-faith relations and increase understanding.
Inter Faith Week aims to strengthen good inter-faith relations, increase awareness of different and distinct faith communities and increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious belief.
Celebrating and building on the contribution which members of different faith and non-faith communities make to their neighbourhoods and wider society is central to these aims.
The Week is facilitated by the Inter Faith Network for the UK and will be community-led, with local people and groups of different backgrounds holding their own events and to highlight work going on to promote understanding between people of different faiths and beliefs.
Further information is available on the Inter Faith Week website. (Scottish Inter Faith Week usually runs one week later.)
