As Birmingham continues to evolve as a Multi Faith city, the need becomes greater for the different Faith communities to relate to each other and to the city at a variety of levels. As well as developing friendships and working together on common issues, it is important that the religious communities are able to contribute with substance to the pressing debates about the future of our city.
Faiths for the City is a project - initiated by the University of Birmingham Multi Faith Chaplaincy - which aims to bring together representatives of the different Faith communities, departments from the University of Birmingham and leaders from the City of Birmingham for a dialogue focused on specific issues related to the welfare of the city and rooted in a discussion of scriptural texts.
Following the launch, Faiths for the City has been focussing on more specific areas of the city’s life: commerce and industry, housing and
public space, the criminal justice system, education and the environment.
