Ecumenical Interfaith meetings
Dialogue between Faith Communities
Since 2018 the leaders of faith communities across Merseyside have met together twice a year with Christian leaders from the Catholic, Anglican and Free Churches. The meetings, which take place at the house of the Bishop of Liverpool, are intended to promote inter religious dialogue and relationship, but also serve as a place where all faith communities can identify areas of common interest, and other agencies can come to consult with faith groups.
Visitors to the Faith Leaders’ Group have been diverse, from the Royal Navy to the Crown Prosecution Service, and from Everton Football Club to local schools.
The Faith Leaders’ Group is coordinated by the Rector of Liverpool, the Revd Canon Dr Crispin Pailing along with an Interfaith Development Officer, Liz Atherton. They would like to encourage Christian congregations to engage locally with places of worship for other faith communities. If you would like help to explore this, or introductions to other faith groups, then please get in touch. To contact Crispin Pailing please use this form, to contact Liz, please follow this link
