Planning has now begun for Scottish Interfaith week and Interfaith Glasgow have been reflecting on the success of last year’s events:
2016 was a special Interfaith Week for us, as Interfaith Glasgow was officially launched as an independent charity at Glasgow City Chambers. We also worked with The Transformation Team to launch the Interfaith Food Justice Declaration at Glasgow Central Gurdwara with support from Angela Constance, MSP; hosted a special Scriptural Reasoning dialogue event on the Interfaith Week theme of Religion and the Media; delivered another fantastic Interfaith Family Fun Day, and held a Sharing Stories event for Glasgow Life staff.
In the midst of all that, Lynnda Wardle, our director and Mohammed Omar found time to nip down to the Houses of Parliament to deliver a presentation about the work of Interfaith Glasgow and the role of Weekend Club at an All Party Parliamentary Inter-Faith Group event showcasing local interfaith initiatives.
2017 will be an exciting Interfaith week and our team are already buzzing with ideas around the theme of ‘Creativity and the Arts.’ Drama, singing, arts and crafts, art tours of places of worship, cooking, creative writing … watch this space for more news and details over the coming months!
