Norwich InterFaith Link is a meeting point for people of diverse religions, cultures and communities, to share experiences and beliefs. In new friendships and shared concerns, bonds of trust are born. We try to meet at least eleven times a year, for talks on challenging topics, visits and discussions on issues of common concern.
'Ye are the fruits of one tree, and the leaves of one branch. Deal ye one with another with the utmost love and harmony, with friendliness and fellowship.’
During Lockdown our monthly meetings on the third Tuesday of every month have continued to take place by Zoom with members on our mailing list reminded by email.
Our best wishes for your health and welfare.
Lady Dannatt has praised the long-standing role of faith groups in the community and has particularly asked for their help in regards to end-of-life care and mental health issues.
Lady Dannatt wrote: “Faith groups are at the centre of our communities. One area that we will need to work together on is the issue of each faith’s requirement when it comes to end of life care,
strict requirements for immediate burial in some cases as well as potentially managing a higher than usual number of deaths. There is equal concern about the effect of the crisis on mental health
and those who may be feeling isolated and anxious. I would take this opportunity to thank you all for the crucial role you play in your communities.
A multi-faith resilience plan for Norfolk is being drawn up, with Aylsham Anglican priest, Rev David Hagan-Palmer, contacting faith groups in due course and if you have any questions or queries,
please contact him either via his email, firstname.lastname@example.org or his Norfolk County Council support team at MPCG@norfolk.gov.uk.
