Inter Faith Week 2022

The Parkes Institute is pleased to release details of the programme for Inter Faith Week 2022 at the University of Southampton.

Inter Faith Week 2022 will take place in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland from Sunday 13 to Sunday 20 November. It’s a week for everyone in which an ever-growing number and variety of organisations take part.

Inter Faith Week was established in 2009 to help to strengthen good inter faith relations; increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK, in particular celebrating and building on the contribution which their members make to their neighbourhoods and to wider society; and increase understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs.

Each year, the Parkes Institute leads organisation of activities for Inter Faith Week at the University of Southampton, including the annual Inter Faith Lecture .
