Inter Faith resources

The Baptist Union of Great Britain has produced a pack of 12 cards – 12 myths of Inter Faith Engagement – that can be used in a variety of settings. They challenge such myths as: 'Inter faith engagement means we sell out on our beliefs and weaken our faith' and ‘There is no reference to Inter faith encounters in the ministry of Jesus’. The cards are an excellent resource for small group discussions and can be downloaded from the Baptist Union website.

In 2017 Churches Together in Britain and Ireland (CTBI) produced a Lent course entitled, ‘Returning Home: Christian Faith in Encounter with Other Faiths’. The resource explores how Christian faith has been deepened and enriched by encounters with people of different religions. It is downloadable from the CTBI website.

In 2011, a group of seasoned interfaith activists and young adult leaders, with a passion for inter faith relationships and culture, launched The Interfaith Observer. It is a free monthly digital journal created ‘to explore interreligious relations and the interfaith movement as a whole’. It can be accessed here.
