A seminar bringing together members of different religions for a debate on the prospects for establishing a Kent inter-faith network is being held at County Hall next month.
The event from 6-8pm on Tuesday 14 November is being coordinated by Kent County Council.
Mike Hill, KCC’s Cabinet Member for Community and Regulatory Services said: “We are hoping that representatives of as many different faiths as possible will be able to attend.
“We want to find out what the various faith groups do in their communities and share ideas about how an inter-faith network could work and what it might achieve.”
The project has the backing of the Kent Equality Cohesion Council and the Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education.
The evening starts with a buffet tea and the opportunity for networking, with the official proceedings beginning with prayers led by the Bishop of Dover, the Rt Rev Trevor Willmott, followed by contributions from local inter faith groups and leaders.
Mr Hill said: “We have already contacted the leaders of various faith groups in Kent, who have agreed to attend.
“However, the evening is also open to members of the general public of any faith who have an interest in sharing their views and having discussions with members of other faiths to promote better understanding between them.”
The event is free to attend, but places must be booked by the end of October.
