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.

CANCELLED - Discussion - Conflict, Reconciliation and Forgiveness Part 3
As a consequence of the corona virus pandemic we have cancelled this third part of the discussion topic on the subject of conflict, reconciliation and forgiveness when we planned to have Pete Hicky come to speak to RIFF about his role as a Street Pastor in Rugby.
Hopefully we will be able to re-arrange the meeting at a later date.
