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.
Scottish Interfaith Week 2023
Striving for change on our own is an insurmountable challenge. Striving for change together is when we can have the biggest impact. The theme for this year’s Scottish Interfaith Week is ‘Community’. Through building sustainable communities, we can create a collective voice for change.
Please check out the Scottish Interfaith Week website for events taking place up until 30th November: www.scottishinterfaithweek.org

Interfaith Creative Projects
Faces of Faith Exhibition
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.
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 email@example.com to request a copy.
