Inter Faith enabling group

Within the URC this area of work is facilitated by the inter faith enabling group which works in close co-operation with ecumanical colleagues. The group helps to support the secretary for ecumenical and interfaith relations.

In a recent review of its activities, the group listed the following priorities to its work:

Inter faith understanding is vital to the life of our churches. We all need the confidence to share our stories within a multi-faith society.

There is a need to strengthen and resource the network of local interfaith advocates/enthusiasts, linking in with ecumenical partners. The group is looking at how we might map a combined ecumenical network of inter faith advocates and ‘enthusiasts’. If you are involved in interfaith activity and would like to register on our database, please contact Carole Sired.

Members of the URC’s inter faith enabling group are: the Revd Clare Downing (chair); the Revd John Bremner; the Revd Tracey Lewis; the Revd Dr John Parry, the Revd Bob Day; Ann Jack; the Revd Sally Thomas; John Mellor and the Revd Philip Brooks.
