The role of faith during the coronavirus pandemic

Tuesday 10 November 0.00 – 0.00


To mark Inter Faith Week (8-15 November), which aims to raise awareness of different faith communities and strengthen relations, we spoke to 5 older people about how their faiths have been affected by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. An estimated 63% of people aged 65+ in England and Wales say they have a religion. For many people who identify as part of a faith, their beliefs - and the community of people with whom they share those beliefs - are an important part of who they are and how they connect with the world. However, in a year where our connections with the people and support systems we usually rely on have been fractured by lockdowns and social distancing, people’s faiths have also been impacted.
