Birmingham Council of Faith's programme for Autumn 2010

Subscribe to RSS RSSMonday, 14th June, 2010

Birmingham Council of Faiths (BCF) was originally founded in 1974 and currently represents Baha'is, Buddhists, Christians, Confucians, Hindus, Jains, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs and Zoroastrians. It aims to promote knowledge and mutual understanding of the beliefs and practices of the city's many religious faiths, sects and denominations. Its belief is that through greater understanding of each other, a more harmonious and cohesive society can be created.

BCF sponsors six activities each year, beginning with the Annual General Meeting. In line with its partnership policy, the other five are usually planned in co-operation with other civic, faith or interfaith bodies in the city. All are open to the general public.

Activities for Autumn 2010 are as follows:

Monday 14 June - visit to Shri Venkatateswara (Balaji) Temple, Tividale

Saturday 3 July - A Zoroastrian Day in Birmingham Zoroastrianism & Hinduism: a comparative perspective

Monday 19 July - AGM Keynote speaker a Buddhist

Wednesday 3 August - Faith to Faith a round table discussion

Sunday 17 October - Faiths for Fun
