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.

Our Belief

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.

Our Membership

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.
