Around 400 people attended and enjoyed our 15th Festival of light on Tuesday 5th December 2017.
Our next event will be 'Any Questions of Faith' in January 2018
Our Aims and Objectives
- To foster mutual understanding
- To facilitate co-operative action
- To be a representative voice for faith communities in Oldham
- To relate to other inter-faith initiatives
- To be autonomous and non-party political
- To work for and from mutual acceptance, without compromise to the beliefs of members
Oldham Interfaith Forum upholds the right of each individual to live by her/his faith. We believe that all faith groups have a part to play in promoting community cohesion.
Membership is open to faith communities which have a place of worship in Oldham. Currently, faith communities which take up those places are from Christian, Muslim and Hindu backgrounds. Members from other faiths who do not have a recognised place of worship in Oldham can be co-opted onto the Forum committee.
