Rugby Interfaith Forum holds monthly discussion meetings and each year a peace walk and public meeting.
The Peace Walk
About a hundred people took part in a walk through Rugby on that first event in 2001 and visited some of the places of worship of the faith communities. We have repeated this Peace Walk most years and plan to continue this tradition in the future. Starting at the Peace Tree we visit typically a Christian church, the Hindu Temple, the Sikh Gurdwara and the Mosque.
We also discussed some of the significant moral issues that confront us such as world poverty, alcohol, climate change and abortion. 2017 discussion topics included refugees, the environment, war and mysticism.

Discussion Meeting - 'Death and Preparing for Death' part 1
This discussion meeting is the first in a series of three meetings talking about how different faiths approach Death and the preparation for Death.
Please come and join us for this complex and challenging topic, perhaps by bringing a short passage or teaching from your sacred texts which you have found to be instructive, inspirational, consoling or reassuring. We will learn much from this shared conversation.
