INTER FAITH WEEK 2023
12-19 November 2023
Inter Faith Week drew to a close on Sunday 19 November. Thank you to everyone who took part!
THE REVD CANON HILARY BARBER AND NARENDRA WAGHELA, CO-CHAIRS OF THE INTER FAITH NETWORK FOR THE UK, WHICH LEADS ON THE WEEK, SAID:
Canon Hilary Barber and Narendra Waghela
“Inter Faith Week has become an increasingly important fixture in the public calendar. Across the last week, hundreds of activities have taken place which have helped to highlight and encourage understanding about different faiths and beliefs; strengthen good inter faith relations and social cooperation for the common good.
With concern about tensions and a rise in antisemitic and anti-Muslim hate incidents in the UK, very welcome was the conversation of HM The King with faith leaders and community representatives at an Inter Faith Week reception for him hosted by the Archbishop of Canterbury. A number of those who held activities to mark the Week have commented on the particular importance of coming together at this time.”
