During our Remembrance Day service, we were reminded that this is the start of Inter Faith Week. It is a special week to focus on inter faith understanding and cooperation. The three key aims of the week are:
1. Strengthening good inter faith relations at all levels
2. Increasing awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK, in particular celebrating and building on the contribution which their members make to their neighbourhoods and to wider society
3. Increasing understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs
As a church, we welcome and support recent moves to strengthen inter faith understanding and cooperation in Aylesbury.
