Interfaith Glasgow is a newly incorporated Scottish charity specialising in promoting and facilitating constructive engagement between different faith and belief communities in Glasgow, so as to help create a better-connected, safer, and more harmonious city for all. We aim to deliver innovative programmes of activities aimed, firstly, at increasing friendships and societal interaction 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 cooperatively to address issues of common concern. Initially a project of Interfaith Scotland’s (the national agency for interfaith dialogue), we have been operating since October 2012 and became an independent charity (SCIO) in May 2016. Our core funding is from the Scottish Government.
Our Weekend Club Project is an innovative programme of events providing activities over the weekend for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants. Our Weekend Club officer, Mohamed Omar, 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, to name just a few of the fun events undertaken over the last 10 months.
