Norwich InterFaith Link

Norwich InterFaith Link is a meeting point for people of diverse religions, cultures and communities, to share experiences and beliefs. In new friendships and shared concerns, bonds of trust are born. We meet monthly, usually the third Tuesday, for talks on challenging topics, discussions on issues of common concern, with occasional visits or other activities.

InterFaith Leaders visited Ukraine in April to show solidarity with the suffering from the war.

Next Meeting

Thursday 18th August 2022 – Zoom meeting
Faith(s) in Nature. Why Care? How to Care? Who Cares?
The Zoom room will open at 7pm for introductions and chat before the talk starts at 7.30pm. Zoom link details to follow.

We are delighted to welcome Ben Grief to lead our discussion. Ben (BSc. MSc. PGCE.) is Director of Conservation & Education at The Otter Trust at Earsham, NR35 2AF. 

He recently helped a Norfolk primary school and their RE lead Pippa to organise a day where members of different faiths (Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, Baháʼí, and Christian)  shared the beliefs and values of their religion about the environment, impressing the children on the unity of their views. 

Gayatri, our treasurer, took part as a Hindu and alerted me to the event.

Faith Coalition for Environment Issues – Expressions of interest

Another of our members has circulated the following:

“In response to a suggestion from the Islamic Foundation for Ecology and Environmental Sciences, Bishop Graham (Diocese of Norwich) is keen to explore the interest in establishing a Norfolk & Waveney-wide coalition of faiths to work on climate change and related issues that need our urgent attention. At his request, I am contacting you to see if you, or someone from your community with a particular interest in the climate and biodiversity emergency, might be interested in attending an initial forum to explore this further. We would propose to hold the initial forum in Norwich in mid-November and will get in touch with more details once we have an idea of and contact details for those keen to be involved.”
