Events for Young People

Interfaith Days in Schools

Interfaith Scotland receives requests from primary and secondary schools from across Scotland, including Shetland, Oban, Stirling and Dumfries, to run 'interfaith days' in their schools. The development officer brings along volunteers to share with pupils and answer questions about what their faith means to them.

 

School Interfaith Days have proved to be an excellent way to break down the negative stereotypes that young people may have about 'religious' people. At Oban High School, the feedback from a pupil was 'I never realised religious people could be so normal!'

Youth Retreats and Away Days

Interfaith Scotland organises youth retreats and away days to places of religious significance. Previous retreats include an interfaith week on Iona staying with the Iona Community and a weekend to Holy Isle at the Centre for World Peace and Health, established by the Samye Ling Tibetan Buddhist Centre.

National Youth Conference

Interfaith Scotland has run seven national youth conferences with help and support from its youth volunteers. The volunteers have been fully involved in choosing a theme for each conference, assisting in creating a programme and in the delivery of the event. Previous themes they have chosen include 'Service above Self' and 'From Conflict to Co-operation'. Read more

Visits to Places of Worship

Interfaith Scotland has organised several visits to places of worship in Glasgow, taking in places of worship such as Garnethill synagogue, Al Furqhan mosque, Berkeley Street Gurdwara, Wellington Parish Church,    St Aloysius Roman Catholic Church,    the Hindu Mandir and Glasgow's Tibetan Buddhist Centre. 

BBC Radio Podcast

Six young people were invited to take part in the making of an interfaith podcast at BBC Scotland. According to one participant, 'It was a very interesting day. We got to hear all about different faiths and it provoked me to think a lot more about my own faith and why I believe the way I do'.
