Scottish Interfaith Week 2019 will take place between 10th – 17th November 2019.

Scottish Interfaith Week provides an opportunity for individuals, local interfaith groups, faith communities, organisations and educational establishments across the country to plan events that bring local people together to promote dialogue, understanding and co-operation between Scotland’s diverse faith and belief communities.

Every year we choose a new theme for the week and provide resources with ideas of activities around the theme. These resources along with a programme of events are available to view on our Scottish Interfaith Week website

We host a launch event for Scottish Interfaith Week in a different area of Scotland each year. Working in collaboration with a local interfaith group, an extravaganza of speakers and performers delight invited guests.
