30 Years of Aberdeen Interfaith Group Celebrated

Wednesday November 8 2023


Aberdeen Interfaith Group will celebrate 30 years of interfaith engagement with an event at Aberdeen Town House on Monday (November 13).

The Lord Provost of Aberdeen, Councillor David Cameron, will attend the event, which will also launch this year’s Scottish Interfaith Week. Mr Cameron said: “As Lord Provost of Aberdeen I am delighted that for 30 years now there has been an interfaith group in the City of Aberdeen. Interfaith dialogue is so important as we navigate the multi-faith world we all live in. The Aberdeen Interfaith Group helps to make our city a safer and more welcoming place to live.”

The chairperson of Aberdeen Interfaith Group, Patricia Findlay, said that in 30 years: ““The group has become a rich and coherent community of friends who have shown compassion to one another and the wider community. Our hope is to continue to project this image of interfaith harmony into the Aberdeen community in the years to come.”

Interfaith Week, from November 12-19, will include events from the Northern Isles to the Borders on the theme of ‘community’. Director of Interfaith Scotland, Dr Maureen Sier said: “Scotland is a nation rich with culture and diversity, though we rarely have the opportunity to celebrate this strength. Scottish Interfaith Week is an accessible and exciting way to learn more about the communities around us and befriend our neighbours.”

Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Rt Rev Sally Foster-Fulton, said: “Scottish Interfaith Week is an opportunity for us to celebrate the wonderful diversity of faith communities in Scotland.”
