Inter Faith relations

In the UK today, we live in the conscious presence of religious diversity. Many congregations and members are located just a stone throw away from mosques, gurdwaras, Hindu temples, synagogues and viharas. In their local communities, some members of our churches will be in daily contact with colleagues and neighbours of different faiths, and many have friendships across faith traditions.

The Greek word 'Oikoumenē' is often translated as the ‘whole household of God’. Within its mission department is the URC's ecumenical and inter faith relations team. Building positive relationships with people from all the faiths is an important part of our mission together.
