During the coronavirus pandemic many events are taking place online.
Online or in person events - we're not 100% sure yet, but we are sure that Scottish Interfaith Week: will take place from 8th to 15th November.
Scottish Interfaith Week is going online this year. We are planning a full programme of online events during the week which will take place from 8th - 15th November on the theme of 'Connecting'. SIFW brings people together whilst promoting dialogue, understanding and co-operation between Scotland’s diverse religious communities and cultures and this year we will be celebrating all the different ways we have found to keep connecting with each other in 2020. We would love it if you could get involved by attending events and even putting on your own. We have prepared a number of resources to help you organise an event which you can find below.
