Maidstone Inter-Faith Network
Bringing faith communities together in Maidstone
Improving understanding, dialogue and relationships between people of different faiths and beliefs in the Maidstone area through respect of differences and recognition of similarities
Maidstone Inter-Faith Network (MIFN) was formed in 2018 when a few like-minded people of different faiths in Maidstone felt the need to develop stronger links between themselves and other faiths in the area. The network continues to grow: our mission is to promote, organise and support inter-faith activities in the Maidstone area to learn about faith and belief traditions, inform others, reduce misunderstanding and improve community relationships.
