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 - 'Music in Worship' part 1The purpose of this RIFF series on Music in Worship is to consider how religious music on the one hand expresses, enhances, explains and unifies our commonly-held religion (whichever it might be), and on the other how it helps us personally to worship God and to seek our own spiritual goals.
This discussion meeting is the first of a three part series. The first two meetings will be talking about the role of music in worship for different faiths. The third part will be a public concert of religious music from the different faiths.
This first meeting will be led by Angela Youngman.
