Interfaith Week Buddies
Inter Faith Week this year is from November 8th to 15th. Cornwall Faith Forum is inviting you to take part in an Inter Faith Buddies scheme https://www.interfaithweek.org/resources/inter-faith-week-buddies to celebrate this important time.
The scheme involves two people of different faiths holding a conversation to share their thoughts on topics such as:
- How does your faith shape your daily life – including at this time of COVID-19?
- What, in your faith encourages service to others in society?
- Or on anything else that you might want to share experiences
This is an opportunity for sharing and learning, on a one-to-one basis across a limited period of time, about what is important to us, in the context of our wider community. The process may, of course, lead to longer term conversations and new forms of practical co-operation.
If you are interested in taking part we will require your name, and your Faith tradition and we will pair you up with a member of a different faith community within Cornwall. You may wish to state if there any particular faith or belief background or backgrounds from which you be would be interested to have an ‘Inter Faith Week buddy’ from. We will try and match you up but we cannot guarantee this.
Please also provide details of the means by which you are willing to make and receive contact. i.e. Phone and/ or email. In doing this you are at the same time giving your permission to share your contact email address and/or phone number with someone who would also like to be a ‘buddy’. Safeguarding is very important. Buddies should be over the age of 18 years old and commit to engage in respectful listening and dialogue. You should also respect the privacy and security of other buddies and their families. We will email you more information on safeguarding and safety once you let us know you wish to participate.
To be involved please register at firstname.lastname@example.org before Thursday 29th October .
