Message from Communities Secretary
"Inter faith social action brings our communities closer together and Inter Faith Week is a terrific opportunity to highlight this, whilst celebrating the practical contribution that our faith groups make to society.
"I hope that people of different faiths and beliefs - from local authorities, schools, and voluntary organisations across the country, will take part in some of the events that will be happening across their communities.
"Inter Faith Week, and the wider work of the Inter Faith Network in the UK, showcases perfectly what can be achieved when those of faith and those of none work together using a combination of social action and practical activities. Hopefully this week will inspire many more people to get involved."Rt Hon Eric Pickles MP, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government
Message from Faith and Communities Minister
"Across the last five years, interfaith week has shown the wide variety of joint action between those of different faiths and beliefs across our communities as people give their time and energy to make their communities a better place.
"So many excellent events have taken place over these years, in places from hospitals to universities and involving hundreds of places of worship, as those who are united and motivated by their faith come together across the country for a good cause.
"I hope that this year even more people of all ages and faith will enjoy working and learning alongside each other during Inter Faith Week."Rt Hon Baroness Warsi, Faith and Communities Minister
