Established by Interfaith Scotland in 2004, Scottish Interfaith Week provides an opportunity for interfaith groups, faith communities, schools, organisations and local communities across the country to celebrate Scotland’s religious diversity by planning events that bring people together to promote dialogue, understanding and co-operation between Scotland’s diverse religious communities and cultures.
Scottish Interfaith Week continues to be managed by Interfaith Scotland and has grown from strength to strength with around 100 events now being held each year across the whole of Scotland. As a result, we have built on this success and launched a new brand and website, with an easy to use online template so you can submit events which will be featured in our online programme and promoted on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
The Scottish Government declared 2018 to be the Year of Young People. One of the main aims of the year was to develop better understanding, co-operation and respect between generations. Faith communities have an important role to play in providing opportunities for people of different generations to dialogue and engage in activities together. We had wonderful events taking place across Scotland in November with people of all ages, faiths and cultures celebrating Scottish Interfaith Week.
