A Celebration of Scottish Interfaith Week
This is a national event to mark Scottish Interfaith Week and draws people from all over Scotland. A different town or city is chosen to host the event each year, and we are delighted to be working in partnership with East Ayrshire Council and the Ayrshire Interfaith Forum on delivering this event in Kilmarnock.
The theme for Scottish Interfaith Week and our Celebration event is ‘Journeys of Faith’
As numbers for this event are limited, please contact Frances Hume as soon as possible if you wish to attend at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0141 420 6982
You can read more about Scottish Interfaith Week on the Interfaith Scotland website where we will be uploading a full programme of events in early November.
A new report from FaithAction brings together evidence around the reach of faith-based organisations (FBOs) and their impact on health and wellbeing, by drawing on published literature. ‘The Impact of Faith-Based Organisations on Public Health and Social Capital’ is available via http://preview.tinyurl.com/pvxfnj9

“Kemal will be working on our South East Glasgow project which is funded through the South East Integration Network up to March 2015. This project will be making connections with faith and belief communities in the South East of Glasgow to run a series of community meals in the various places of worship in this part of the city. These meals will be an opportunity for people from all backgrounds to experience some of the diversity which exists in the South East and will also be an excellent opportunity for dialogue too.”

Claire is disabled.
Is it the will of a higher power?
Is she paying for the mistakes of a past life?
Is it a test for her, or a punishment for her parents?
Could she, should she, be healed?
Is she welcomed by all faiths or will it all prove just too inaccessible?
