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

 

About Us

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.

What we've been doing and our future plans

INTER-FAITH MARRIAGE: ONLINE SEMINAR - 9 NOVEMBER 2020.

This event was a great success, with participants joining from Kent, other parts of the UK and even the USA!  Rev Dr Bonni-Belle Pickard gave an inspiring presentation, sharing her research findings on inter-faith marriage.  Time was also provided for breakout discussion groups to explore some issues in greater depth.

We have provided inter-faith activities and support to the following schools and youth groups:

  • Langley Park Primary School (Sept 2019)

  • Aylesford School (Nov 2019)
