Interfaith Week

 We’d love to invite you to join us for this year’s National Interfaith Week event sponsored by Cheltenham Interfaith, the University of Gloucestershire and Cheltenham Borough Council.


This year we are reflecting together our experience of the pandemic so far. How has this affected our faith and our faith communities? What has been challenging for our faith? How has our faith helped us?

We will watch a number of short videos from members of different faith communities, and have an opportunity to discuss these together in break-out groups, as well as offering our own reflections.


The event will take place online on Weds November 11th from 7.15pm – 8.30pm. In order to take part you need to register for your free place through Eventbrite, using this link: You will then be sent the Zoom link so you can join the meeting between 7.00pm and 7.15pm.


Usually, when we meet together, sharing food is an important part of the occasion. This year, when you register and during the meeting we’ll be giving information about how we can support the Mayor of Cheltenham’s Foodbank Fund, and we’re delighted that Cheltenham Borough Council have agreed to match the donations which we make up to the value of £400.

We do hope you can join us at this event. Even though it will be very different it seems more important than ever for us to come together and share our thoughts and feelings, whatever our beliefs or faith community.
