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.

COP28 Briefing for Faith and Belief Communities

COP28 is over and our Climate Justice Associate, Adrian Shaw, has prepared a useful guide to what happened in Dubai. This briefing highlights the key outcomes of the Cop, gives up-to-date information on the science, and concludes with actions for Religious Leaders.

Interfaith Creative Projects

Faces of Faith Exhibition

Interested in hosting the exhibition at your venue? Contact frances@interfaithscotland.org

This exhibition is a showcase of Scotland’s diverse religious and cultural communities.

Through the stories of sixteen people, we explore the joys, challenges, and complexities of living as a person of faith in Scotland, and the impact these communities have on a local, national, and international level.

View the exhibition on the Scottish Interfaith Week website.

Poetry Book

We worked with the Scottish Poetry Library to create a beautiful anthology of 40 poems written by poets of all faiths and beliefs.

The poets shared insights into what gave them support and inspiration during the pandemic such as nature, faith and culture. You can read more here.

The poetry book is available to purchase from Interfaith Scotland for £4.99. Please email admin@interfaithscotland.org to request a copy.
