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.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, Interfaith Scotland has been working with faith communities and local interfaith groups across Scotland to assist them in their work of supporting communities at the grassroots level. For up-to-date information on the current crisis please go to the Scottish Government website. Find out more about the re-opening of Places of Worship in Scotland
Glasgow Multi-Faith Declaration for COP26

Scottish Interfaith Week
Scottish Interfaith week 2021 took place from Sunday 31st October to Sunday 7th November.
Over 70 events were held for Scottish Interfaith Week.
The COP26 Vigil was held in George Square, Glasgow on Sunday 31st October. We marked the start of COP26 and Scottish Interfaith Week by uniting with people of all faiths and none for Climate Justice.
Senior religious leaders read the Glasgow Multi-Faith Declaration for COP26 and led prayers from a diversity of religious traditions. All participants – whether joining in person or online – were invited to pray or hold in their thoughts the COP26 negotiators.
We partnered with Interfaith Glasgow and the Scottish Religious Leaders Forum for the Vigil.
Watch the Vigil below.
