Interfaith Scotland Youth Network Away Day – Saturday 14th September
It’s almost a year since the Interfaith Scotland Youth Network held a retreat for young people laying out the foundation of the Youth Network.
The Network is hoping to commemorate that event by going away for a day together in the Campsies on the 14th of September. It will be a day of talking and walking, and enjoying nature.
"The declaration of a Climate emergency by the Scottish government warrants a meeting to see how Interfaith Scotland has reacted to this and how we as young people can contribute to this."
Please encourage any young people in your churches and networks who may be interested in this event to contact Frances Hume (Senior Development Officer) at [email protected]

Scottish Interfaith Week
Scottish Interfaith Week this year will take place during the week of 10th – 17th November 2019.
Taking the theme "Eat, Share, Love" the week is an opportunity to learn about each other’s faith or culture by sharing food and stories. Enjoy a meal together, share recipes and skills, cook together or for each other. Eat, sing, dance, talk, create, innovate, experience and most importantly, enjoy. Getting involved is easy. You can organise anything from a small gathering in your home or community centre to a large event in your local place of worship, school or library.
SIFW brings people together whilst promoting dialogue, understanding and co-operation between Scotland’s diverse religious communities and cultures. For more information visit the website.
Prayer in Three Major Faiths
|The Ignatian Spirituality Centre in partnership with the Scottish Roman Catholic Bishops’ Committee for Interreligious Dialogue offer three afternoons on prayer (14:30 - 17:00)|
Each afternoon will focus on one major world faith. This year we shall look at prayer in the Jewish, Sikh and Islamic traditions.
We shall consider how each tradition sees prayer and the different ways of praying in that tradition.
There will be an opportunity to consider what is important to each of these three major faiths.
Participants will also be able to find out the significance of a Jewish prayer shawl, Sikh prayer beads, Muslim positions of prayer.
Where appropriate participants will be invited to participate in prayer.
