Interfaith Moray

About Us

Interfaith Moray is a network of people of any faith and none in Moray. We meet every two months for dialogue, learning about different faiths and planning upcoming events. We also have an email list where members share information of interest to other Moray Interfaith members. We started in 2014 and are now a member of tsiMoray.

The Growing Grove

We have established an interfaith grove of trees and with a small grant from Interfaith Scotland, we created the 'Interfaith Moray Growing Grove'. The grove currently has 38 trees. 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/

Membership and Meetings

The group meets every other month at St Sylvester’s Church in Elgin.  The meetings are chaired by a member of the group. 

 

Becoming involved with the Faith Group gives members the chance to:

  • Meet and exchange ideas and experiences with members of other faiths
  • Help promote a better mutual understanding among believers of different religions
  • Work with others on issues of common interest
  • Help in planning and running Interfaith Week activities.

 

We maintain one email list for Interfaith Moray use, to announce meetings and events. A second, opt-in email list allows members to directly share news, events, and opportunities with one another.

News and Events

We are currently working on mapping the Peace Poles that exist in Moray. And we are very interested in reaching out to members of faiths not yet represented in Moray Interfaith.

In 2015 and 2016, we organised and hosted an ‘International Peace Day Celebration’. These events were well attended by our members as well as people from the wider community, and the days included singing from the local Interfaith Choir, speakers, chanting, dancing, and more. 

 

 

We have also run events as part of Interfaith Week, including ‘Caring for the Environment’ in 2015. A wonderful off-shoot of this event was creating our own Growing Grove (see above).
