Together with the University Chaplaincy, this year we are involved in running a series of talks and events for interfaith week 2013, including an evening examining the legacy of Revd Dr James Parkes for interfaith relations. James Parkes (1896-1981) was one of the most remarkable figures in British Christianity in the twentieth century. He became a priest in 1926 and was affiliated to the Student Christian Movement and the International Student Service, Geneva, through which he began to confront the growth of nationalist and racialist organisations in Europe during the late 1920s. Thereafter, he devoted his career to fighting antisemitism and seeking out its origins. Parkes believed that in order to establish future dialogue between Christians and Jews it was essential to understand what Christians had thought about Jews and the Jewish religion throughout the ages.

 

Interfaith week events include discussion of an interview with James Parkes, conversations for the soul, an exhibition focusing on questions in interfaith dialogue and Space for Peace - a musical vigil for peace with a variety of religious and secular musical and choral groups. Please do get in touch for more details.
