Dudley Borough Interfaith Network is a registered charity, working with and alongside faith communities in Dudley Borough. We support faith communities in building better understanding with each other and with the wider community, and increasing interaction and joint action in our local communities.
Interfaith simply means ‘between faiths’. We come together, respecting our diverse beliefs and practices, as well as valuing that which we have in common. Increasingly our projects aim to support faith communities in interacting with the wider community, both to build awareness, and to harness the activities of our congregations for the benefit of our neighbourhoods.
It’s often said we’re not so much about faith, as we are about people. In fact we’re about both. Our members seek to build bridges, because of their beliefs that we should all be peace makers, that we should all add to our community rather than delegate responsibility elsewhere.
The Network is open to everyone, of all faiths and none. The Dudley Council of Faiths has existed since 1981, with informal activity since at least 1975, and developed into the Interfaith Network in 2001. We are a registered charity, (Charity number 1099967). Our executive body is comprised of nominated members of various faiths.
