We are particularly blessed here in Birmingham because over 40% of the population belong to BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) communities resulting in a rich variety of faiths. We have been coordinating our local U3A World Faiths group for 3 years, which has involved discussions and visits to a range of faith buildings, including faith schools and community centres.

Outside of the U3A we are both immersed in interfaith activities through the Birmingham Council of Faiths, of which we are 3rd Sector Liaison Officers and Jean is Secretary. We are also members of the Birmingham City Council Faiths' Round Table and we organise twice-yearly Faiths, Health and Wellbeing seminars. We have also worked with people of different faiths in other countries, particularly Papua New Guinea, Maldives, India, Malawi, Kenya and Uganda.

Please let us know if you have a local World Faiths' group and the activities you pursue. Also contact us if you need any advice on operating World Faiths' groups.
