Across Britain and Ireland there is a rich tapestry of faiths. Some people belong to major world religions that are ancient and historic, while others follow smaller, newer faiths.

Churches Together in Britain and Ireland provides an ‘ecumenical space' in which these and other issues can be explored and reflected upon. Theological reflection is carried out by the Inter Faith Theological Advisory Group.
