West Midlands Interfaith Week Launch 2009
The West Midlands Interfaith Week launch event took place on the 14th November 2009 at Birmingham Council House, Banqueting Suite. The focus of the evening was to celebrate and recognise the value of inter faith work in the region. The event assisted in bringing together numerous inter faith groups, subsequently working towards showcasing how they foster stronger community relations and cooperation, working alongside one another and together to improve the quality of life in their locality. The launch event had strong support from key stakeholders including he Government Office for the West Midlands, West Midlands Police Service and West Midlands Fire Service. Attendees from across the region were given an in-depth view of the positive contribution inter faith initiatives have made throughout the West Midlands. The overall objective was to use the event as a platform to emphasize and share the richness of the West Midlands religious and spiritual diversity through highlighting grassroots interfaith understanding, harmony, co-operation and renewal.
