Yet faith and belief inclusion is often overlooked, sometimes out of fear of ‘getting it wrong’. We can help.

    This National Inter Faith Week, you are warmly invited to join The Faith & Belief Forum at our training space in Kentish Town for networking and discussion over breakfast. Presentations will explore the common myth that talking about religion is necessarily awkward and uncomfortable, and how this idea harms employers and employees. Get to know The Faith & Belief Forum's key principles for faith inclusion and how they can support workplaces to open up rather than close down sensitive conversations, enabling you to meet the needs of your diverse teams and support everyone to thrive at work.

    The book explores the antisemitic potential of Matthew’s Gospel in the Christian New Testament. It begins with a detailed discussion of the occasion of the text, before discussing key questions (Matthew’s fulfilment theology, and the use of polemic in the text). Three crucial texts are examined in detail. The book discusses the reverberations of the “blood cry,” arguing the deicide-focused interpretation of Matthew 27:25 is foundational to subsequent blood libels, which are also discussed. The final chapters explore how to preach from Matthew’s Gospel with Jewish people in mind, including offering sample sermons to stimulate the reader’s thinking about how they might teach from a controversial Matthean text in a way that denies the possibility of perpetuating Christian antisemitism.

    Join us for this special Science and Religion event to discuss the very latest research study in this area in the UK during Interfaith Week 2022.Our keynote speaker Nick Spencer has led on this ground–breaking report Science and Religion: Moving away from the shallow end which draws on a three–year project in which the researchers conducted over a hundred in–depth interviews with leading academics and science communicators and commissioned a YouGov public opinion poll of over 5,000 UK adults.
    For years the conversation on this topic has fixed on a limited number of (scientific) topics – evolution, Big Bang, neuroscience – and often on the loudest voices there. In short, the ‘science and religion’ conversation is needlessly shallow and needlessly noisy. This event will draw on the latest research, stimulate conversation and bring out the more nuanced and complex relationship between science and religion.

    "Faith" is taken to mean any belief in or acceptance of doctrines of a religion.
    "Trust" is taken to mean believing in or reliance on the honesty, reliability and ability of another
    "Relationships" is taken to mean connections between people, communities, or religious, social and cultural practices.

Faith groups and communities have an important part to play and through this event we want to recognise that, spotlight some of the great work happening in the borough, share best practice and provide a space for networking and collaboration. The evening will also include an opportunity to hear about the support on offer from the Council on practical elements such as decarbonising buildings and encouraging active transport for those attending places of worship."
