On behalf of FIRD Chairman Toaha Qureshi MBE, you are cordially invited to attend FIRD's "Faith in Politics" event for Parliament Week & Inter Faith Week 2018.

Faith in Politics is being arranged by FIRD ( in partnership with Stephen Timms MP, Chair APPG on Faith and Society, to look at how faith has been incorporated into British politics. This event is a merger of Inter Faith Week 2018 and Parliament Week 2018. We are grateful to be once again hosted by the KN Centre. Lunch/refreshments will be provided. We will be looking at a number of areas including:

1. Personal stories of entering politics
2. Personal experiences of faith and faith in politics
3. Why politics needs faith or indeed if politics does NOT need faith
4. What the future holds for people of faith entering politics

In 2017, FIRD held the "Engaging Faith Communities with British Democracy" at the KN Centre where The Lord Alderdice and Tim Farron MP were the keynote speakers.
