Local Women’s Interfaith Dialogue Groups

Interfaith Scotland supports three local women’s interfaith dialogue groups in Glasgow, Edinburgh and North Lanarkshire. Click on the links below for more information about these groups.

Interfaith Scotland Local Dialogue Events for Women

Interfaith Scotland hosts regular women’s dialogue events in towns and cities across Scotland.

Discussion is always lively and has been described as as ‘a very positive and nourishing experience which gave a boost to my flagging hope for humanity’.


International Women’s Day

We hosted a special event for International Women’s Day in March 2023, in partnership with Women of Faith and Community. Trishna Singh shared extracts from her memoir, A Silent Voice Speaks: The Wee Indian Woman on the Bus, published by Fledgling Press in 2022.

The event was followed by langar (lunch) at the Sikh Gurdwara on Berkeley Street.


Pilgrimage to Places of Worship

We hosted a pilgrimage to places of worship in the West End of Glasgow on the theme of ‘Stories of Hope from Women of Faith’ in February 2022.

Participants met a woman of faith at each place of worship who shared her faith journey, and how her faith gives her hope in difficult times. Places of worship visited included Glasgow University Chapel, the Hindu Mandir, the Sikh Gurdwara and Garnethill Synagogue.

You can watch the talks from the pilgrimage on our YouTube Channel.


Creativity Workshops

We hosted two creative events for women during Scottish Interfaith Week 2021.

One explored journeys of faith through creative arts and took place at The Welcoming, an Edinburgh-based charity which supports refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. The other focussed on creative writing. Through creative writing and conversation, we explored our own personal and spiritual connections with the world around us.


Women’s Voices in Climate Action

To mark International Women’s Day in March 2021, we held an event called ‘Women’s Voices in Climate Action’.

The event outlined the effect of the climate crisis on women and children, and the inspiring work of women to combat the climate crisis both nationally and internationally.

Connecting Women of Different Faiths, Beliefs and Cultures

We organised a women’s dialogue for Scottish Interfaith Week 2020 called ‘Connecting Women of Different Faiths, Beliefs and Cultures’.

The event was hosted in partnership with Bridging the Gap, a Glasgow-based charity that supports refugees and asylum seekers.


Women and Leadership

We hosted an event called ‘Women and Leadership’ in May 2020 with Professor Susan Madsen. The event focused on developing women’s leadership through strengthening identity, purpose and confidence.


Health and Wellbeing for Body and Soul

From 2015-2018, we hosted interfaith dialogues on the theme of ‘Health and Wellbeing for Body and Soul’ looking at the links between spirituality and health. These took place in Dumfries, Stirling, Forres, Edinburgh and Dundee.


Women’s Interfaith Fair

From 2015 – 2019, we hosted a lively ‘Women’s Interfaith Fair’ to celebrate Scottish Refugee Festival with over 100 women in attendance from different nationalities and faiths.


Values and Visions for the Future of Scotland

In the build-up to the Scottish referendum in September 2014, we hosted a number of women’s dialogue events on the theme of ‘Values and Visions for the Future of Scotland’. These took place in Dundee, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Inverness and Portree.
