Kirklees Inter Faith Week 2021

14-21 November 2021 is Inter Faith Week. It’s a chance to celebrate the positive contribution different faiths bring to the local community and wider society. It’s also an opportunity to come together to learn more about religious diversity and gain a greater understanding of different beliefs, cultures and traditions.

In the below booklet you will find the details of various events that have been organised by local community and faith organisations and Kirklees Council.
