Interfaith Scotland is the national interfaith organisation for Scotland.

We work to help ensure good relations between the diverse religion and belief communities of Scotland and also to share good practice in interfaith dialogue, education, engagement and training nationally and internationally.

Interfaith Scotland is a charity and we appreciate all donations, big or small.

Our events

Faith Communities Serving Others Together (World Interfaith Harmony Week)

As part of World Interfaith Harmony Week we are hosting an event to showcase the wonderful work of faith communities and local interfaith groups who were supported by Interfaith Scotland to provide support for their local communities during the global pandemic.

The event is taking place on Zoom on 11th February from 6.30pm. Sign up here.

 

Interfaith Buddies Event (World Interfaith Harmony Week)

As part of World Interfaith Harmony Week we hosted an Interfaith Buddies event. The event provided an opportunity to connect with someone from a faith tradition or non-religious belief other than your own, on a one-to-one basis, to find out more about each other’s faith or belief. There were also speakers from different faiths on ‘Connecting through Conversation’.

The event took place on 3rd February on Zoom.
