Interfaith Moray held its first meeting at St Sylvester's Parish Halls in Elgin on 24th September 2014. A number of people in the Moray area had expressed an interest in forming an interfaith group and there was much enthusiasm at the first meeting for taking this forward. The group meets every two months for dialogue, learning about different faiths and planning upcoming events.
Interfaith Moray celebrated Scottish Interfaith Week 2015 with a public meeting where each faith tradition had an opportunity to speak on 'Caring for the Environment'. The evening included a presentation by Trees for Life, a local charity that encourages people and groups to plant groves of trees. We decided during the evening to establish an interfaith grove of trees and with a small grant from Interfaith Scotland, we created the 'Interfaith Moray Growing Grove'. Individuals or groups can add trees at any time for £5 a tree, and you can leave your name, organisation and a comment. It's an easy way to show support for interfaith, and in a way that does something positive for the environment. Trees are being planted in Scotland to help restore the native Caledonian forest. The grove webpage is http://treesforlife.org.uk/plant-trees/grove/7030/
The Moray Interfaith Initiative led to three local schools, Elgin Academy, Gordonstoun and Lossiemouth High, engaging in regular interfaith seminars and activities. To find out more about the Moray Schools Initiative, contact Fiona MacAllister: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Director of Interfaith Scotland spent an inspiring afternoon with pupils of Lossiemouth High School who had decided to form a pupil-led Equality Forum. The four senior pupils were seeking advice and guidance on what the Equality Forum could do, how they might begin the work of the Forum and how their school could become an Equality and Diversity Champion.
