Interfaith Glasgow is a Scottish charity specialising in promoting and facilitating engagement between different faith and belief communities in Glasgow, to help create a better-connected, safer, and more harmonious city for all. We aim to deliver programmes of activities aimed, firstly, at increasing friendships n between people of diverse faiths and beliefs; secondly, at fostering greater mutual understanding and challenging prejudices and misconceptions; and, thirdly, at increasing opportunities for people from different faith communities to work together on issues of common concern. We been operating since October 2012 and became an independent charity (SCIO) in May 2016. We are funded in part by the Scottish Government as well as other grant funders.
Our Weekend Club Project is an innovative programme of events providing activities over the weekend for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. Our Weekend Club Project Manager, Lynnda Wardle, along with 10 dedicated volunteers from different faith and belief traditions, have worked hard to make this pilot project the success it is!
Together they have planned and delivered various fantastic events including a visit to the Christmas market, a ceilidh and Burns Supper, a visit to Bannockburn, shortbread making, an introduction to Scots Law and a visit to New Lanark and Edinburgh Castle to name just a few of the fun events undertaken.

WORLD INTERFAITH HARMONY WEEK
1 – 7 February 2018
At a time when forces of prejudice and hate threaten to destabilise relationships between communities both locally and globally, World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) provides a perfect opportunity for us to reflect on what interfaith harmony consists in, why it matters, and how we can most effectively work towards it.
To this end, Interfaith Glasgow will host a series of three events exploring three key elements of interfaith harmony: friendship, dialogue, and cooperation.
