Welcome to the Bristol Multi-Faith Forum website.

I hope that in reading it you will catch a glimpse of the vibrant picture of cooperation and respectful community building that the Forum exists to encourage within the city of Bristol.

Funded by Bristol City Council, under its Equalities agenda, the Multi Faith Forum aims to provide opportunities for communication and relationship building between people of different faiths and enable people of diverse communities and traditions to engage together in the direction and development of the city. We talk to one another … and together talk with the wide community of Bristol.

It is in building understanding, friendship and cooperation that people of different faiths come to recognize that, while there are differences, we hold a lot of values and hopes in common as well as a conviction that life is a sacred gift. The careful building of relationship that the Forum exists to bring about, we believe, adds to a more peaceful and robust society.

Over the last 2 years, the Multi Faith Forum has started to spread its wings to encourage involvement from many different faiths, partnership working with faith and statutory organizations and a wider range of opportunities to engage in the building of a strong, diverse community.

We hope you will find the stories, reports and planned events detailed in the website informative and interesting. The Forum has an open membership and all are welcome meetings and events. Do get in touch if you’d like to be part of the Multi Faith Forum’s ongoing work and conversations.

Our Winter 2016 News Magazine, published in December 2016 gives an idea of the work we have been involved with over recent months. Read it here.
