‘Speed-Faithing’,

Birmingham University

‘Purim, Ayyám-i-Há and Lent’,

Durham University

“For the first time ever, Cambridge Muslims were hosted at Fisher House to break the Ramadan fast together and enjoy the company and service of Catholics.”

“If there is one thing that working towards interfaith engagement on campus has taught me, it is the need to harness the buzz and the energy that follows an event to make sure that discussion continues beyond that event.”

“Unity does not require us to paralyse our beautiful heterogeneity as a community of humans, unity requires us to celebrate and cherish our differences and this is why we gathered together.”

An opportunity to “see the progress that women have made in Jewish, Christian, Muslim, and Humanist communities, their struggles, and how they have come to understand their place in the world not only as a woman, but as a woman of faith.”

“It is great to have met some new friends, help those in need and gain insight into the different faith perspectives on the significance of food, faith and friendship”

     
     

‘Hate Speech and Religious Conflict’,

‘Misconceptions in Faith’

‘Women’s Roles in Religion’,

Durham University

‘Faith in the Home’

‘Interfaith Question Time’,

Cardiff University

“The attendees took part in an engaging Q&A session with the panellists, grilling them on the value, if any, in women’s only study and worship spaces; if the reasoning behind ritual purification laws is sexist; and whether there is value in leaving orthodox/traditional religious space for egalitarian ones.”

“Building communication and open dialogue between faiths is essential.”

“The event itself was exciting and successful, with a highly positive response and great conversations held afterwards. Around 90 eager students were present who asked many questions, allowing all those on the panel to explain issues of their faith (or lack of)”.
