Welcome to Worcestershire Interfaith Forum. We are a group of people, including faith leaders, who are dedicated to representing the interests of faith communities and furthering inter-faith dialogue in Worcestershire.

We believe in working together and building friendships between different groups. This means recognising diverse perspectives as well as seeking to foster what connects us as people of faith. Faith in this context also refers to an individuals devotion to a set of beliefs that further what is most kind, loving and compassionate in the world.

The forum invites representatives from all faith groups & does not exclude those who don’t follow a particular faith tradition or those who consider themselves non-religious.

Thank you for visiting.

WIFF climate change commitment

The representatives of the Baha’i, Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Quaker, Sikh Faith traditions of Worcestershire, state that as Brothers and Sisters in both Faith and common Humanity, we uphold the sacredness of the Earth and all its dependent life, including its seas, forests, mountains and plains. We believe the words of the Great Native American, Chief Seattle, (Duwamish Tribe) are true –  that “Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect”.

We are all deeply concerned about the state of our natural environment and poor stewardship of it which causes the deepening climate crisis. We therefore call upon not only Faith communities, but the politicians, businesses and social communities of Worcester to do everything within their power to nurture and sustain the environment, for the benefit of all – both present and yet to come.
