There are plenty of ways to be involved in interfaith activities in Glasgow

 

Sharing Stories: Headcoverings

SharingStories_Headcoverings_2017

Do you wear a headscarf, hijab, turban or other headcovering? Or perhaps you’ve decided not to?
Interfaith Glasgow are bringing together a small group of women from diverse religions and cultures to share their stories.
Participants will attend 4 storytelling workshops during February and March 2017, giving them the chance to meet fellow storytellers, build up ideas and confidence, and practice telling their story.  They will then have the opportunity to share their story at a special final event that will take place during Islam Awareness Week (27th March – 2nd April) 2017.

**Please note that spaces are limited and participants will be selected in order to ensure a mix of women from diverse backgrounds**

 

Scriptural Reasoning

Scriptural Reasoning is a type of interfaith dialogue where people come together in small groups to read extracts of scripture together in an informal, friendly setting.  In each session participants look at a particular theme like fasting, creation or poverty.  The aim is not for participants to agree but to grow in their understanding of each other.  We currently have a group for Jews, Christians, and Muslims that meets every six weeks, rotating around different places of worship in Glasgow on a weekday evening. we have also organised wider Scriptural Reasoning discussions to include members of other faith and belief traditions backgrounds. For more information click here.

If you are interested in becoming involved or would like more information please email:  development@interfaithglasgow.org

 

Weekend Club – Participants and Contributors Welcome!

We have a team of 12 fantastic volunteers from different religion and belief backgrounds to deliver our exciting new Weekend Club initiative.  This is an interfaith response to the identified lack of services for refugees, asylum seekers, and new migrants at the weekend.  Our interfaith group of volunteers will deliver a programme of monthly  ‘Weekend Club’ activities to tackle the social poverty experienced by refugees, asylum seekers, and new migrants over the weekend and .  If you are a refugee, asylum seeker, or new migrant, or  if you work with these groups and would like to hear more, do get in touch!  If you have ideas, skills, or venues you think might be useful to this venture, please contact Mohamed at: weekendclub@interfaithglasgow.org
