Inter Faith Engagement
We live and work in a multi-faith world. As Baptists we are called to make Jesus known, but we also have a deep-rooted value of the freedom of belief. To this end, we seek to build good and meaningful relationships with people of other faiths and none, that together we may live in harmony and enrich one another. Being situated in a multi-faith community can be very challenging for Baptist Churches.
We, together with our Inter Faith Working Group, are seeking to help churches to:
encounter people of other faiths with respect
develop positive relationships with people of other faiths
encourage authentic dialogue
encourage real engagement and journeying together
This approach celebrates that which we have in common whilst recognising the uniqueness of Christ and the salvation offered through him, and enables us to witness with integrity and respect.

Easy First Steps…in meeting your neighbours of other faiths is an event open to anyone interested in discovering what we hold in common with our neighbours from across the faiths. More information here
