The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams; Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks; and Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, opened a national faith communities' conversation on the theme of 'Living well together' in Britain today. The conversation - to mark Inter Faith Week 2011 - took place on Monday 21 November at Central Hall Westminster and was arranged by the Inter Faith Network for the UK.
The following brief speeches were offered as an opening reflection to this conversation, which brought together senior faith representatives from nine faith communities.
Any further work arising from this conversation will be taken forward, in consultation with the faith communities, by the Inter Faith Network for the UK over the course of the coming year.
