Norwich InterFaith Link tree at the 2019 Christmas Tree Festival in St Peter Mancroft church, Norwich

Norwich is a University city and people in Norfolk have global and national links through family, work, media and travel. All children and young people learn about world religions in their schools. There are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Spiritualist and Sikh places of worship in Norwich. There are Pagans, Humanists, Atheists and Agnostics. Families from different faiths and schools celebrate festivals and the City of Norwich remembers Holocaust Memorial Day, Remembrance Sunday, and the Forum building hosts the Peace Camp annually. The 2011 census classified Norwich as England’s most godless city, having the highest proportion of respondents reporting “no religion”, 42.5% compared with 25.1% for England and Wales as a whole. While there are many who do not affiliate with any of the main religions, Norwich Interfaith Link provides a forum for people from different groups, including humanists, agnostics and atheists, to share their questions, experiences and beliefs.
