Interfaith Relations

Consorting with people of all faiths in a spirit of loving kindness is an article of faith for members of the Bahá’í community. Today Bahá’ís, who live in almost 500 localities in the UK, wholeheartedly and actively promote interfaith ideals at many levels of society. 


Since the 1980’s the Bahá’í Community has been involved with nurturing the initiatives that led to the formation of the national Inter Faith Network’s constitution from the time of its conception. Bahá’is throughout the country actively support and participate in the network’s various local initiatives, including National Interfaith Week. All activities coordinated by Bahá’ís at both local and national levels are open to people of all faiths and no particular faith.


The Bahá’ís at local and national level are also actively involved in other interfaith groups and councils, such as the World Congress of Faiths, the Faith Based Regeneration Network, the Faith Communities Forum, Faiths Forum for London and the UK Women of Faith Network, to name a few.

"Consort with all religions with amity and concord, that they may inhale from you the sweet fragrance of God" 

- Bahá'u'lláh
