Meetings and Events

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.

Meetings

Rugby Inter Faith Forum is now a network of some 30 -4- members from the main faith communities in Rugby – Baha’i, Christian, Hindu, Muslim and Sikh. We meet about once a month with about a dozen people attending. Initially our reflections centred on the phrases of the millennium resolution which were drawn up with common ground between the faiths in mind. We have since ranged over such topics as festivals, prayer, scriptures, stories, prophets & holy men and women, euthanasia and what happens after death.
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.

    Relating Across the Divides': Oxford Three Faiths Encounter

    St. John’s College, Oxford

    The focus is on an increased understanding and friendship between Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All who wish to learn more about the beliefs and practices of these three faiths are welcome.
    We are able to subsidise student places, so we encourage students to apply for a reduced rate.

    Towards the end of our time together, over the weekend of 5th-7th April we will be linking into the regular worship with local Abrahamic faith groups.
