We invite you to join our team in promoting understanding and building unity among different faiths.

Do you feel drawn to encourage constructive and positive interaction with people from different religious faiths?

Do you enjoy meeting new people and promoting positive relations? Could volunteering enrich and expand your own spiritual or personal growth? Would you be able to offer advice and help organise interfaith initiatives and events?

What is Interreligious Relations?

Interreligious refers to the understanding and building unity between people of different religious faiths. It promotes the idea that all religions can coexist peacefully, and that people of different beliefs can come together to work towards common goals. Interfaith dialogue is an important aspect of interfaith cooperation, as it allows people of different faiths to come together and discuss their beliefs and practices in a respectful and open-minded way. There are many groups and initiatives that work to promote interfaith understanding and cooperation in our Diocese and nationally.

Who are we? What do we do?

We are a small team of dedicated individuals who promote positive relations across the different religious faiths. As a volunteer with our team, you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of initiatives and events.

Our main role is advisory, we assist in matters pertaining to beliefs, practices and ways of life of the followers of the major faiths present in our country. We promote knowledge and understanding in order to combat prejudice and discrimination, and misunderstanding particularly in relation to asylum seekers and refugees.

We welcome volunteers with enthusiasm and an attitude of understanding towards others, with good organisational and communication skills.

Our team meets in person and online 3 – 4 times per year. We organise events and attend meetings, conferences and events as representatives from our Diocese. We are currently based from St Robert’s in Fenham, Newcastle.
