This week is Interfaith Week, a week to raise awareness and understanding between people of different religions and beliefs. Interfaith Week is for everyone regardless of religion or non-religion.

 

The co-chairs of Interfaith Week for the UK say:


Inter Faith Week is a tremendous opportunity to learn about the faith communities that make such an important contribution to our life in the UK.  This year, as we mark the centenary of the Armistice, this will include learning about the profoundly important service of soldiers and civilians of different faiths and beliefs from Britain and from the now Commonwealth, as well as reflection on work for peace.  

At a time when prejudice and hate is so often in the news, the Week is also a time for reaching out and making new connections with people of different faiths and beliefs -  it’s about how we can live well together, respecting difference but making common cause for the wellbeing of our local communities.”

 

Activities hosted by our Christian Union,@LeedsTrinityCU, across campus have included events covering Islam, Buddhism, Christianity and Sikhism. Big thank you to Christian Union chair Sophie Sinclair for organizing a diverse range of events this week!
