For over 40 years, through various transformations, Interfaith Wolverhampton’s work has helped people of different faiths – and none – come to know each other better, stand up together against prejudice and those who would spread distrust and discord; make common cause on issues of shared interest and concern; and enable public agencies and others to involve faith communities in their work with practical social outcomes,
We aim to dispel hatred and misunderstanding through dialogue and friendship between people of different faiths and cultures. We bring communities together through annual events such as Prayers for Peace at St Peter’s Collegiate Church. We arrange visits to different places of worship both within Wolverhampton and in other cities. Organise discussions on issues impacting on the local communities.
These events make a positive impact on raising awareness, tolerance and respect between communities. We work in partnership with faith organisations in the City, City of Wolverhampton Council, Wolverhampton University, the Police, Probation Service, the NHS and Compton Hospice.
IFW actively promotes understanding and respect for the differing faiths that exist within the City of Wolverhampton but does not promote any specific faith belief.We have devised a programme whereby we can give practical help to voluntary or statutory groups. If you feel that we could assist you why not give us a call or email us direct. We also seek volunteers. A copy of our latest newsletter is featured on the right hand side of this page along with a membership form.
