With the help of one or two guest speakers, we will facilitate a conversation on a topic of interest to you, before opening the floor for each of you to share any stories, best-practices, or challenges you’ve faced. It’s an opportunity for each of you to share what you’ve learnt with others, and to glean wisdom and ideas from each other as you learn about what other members around the country are up to.
You’re likely facing many of the same challenges; why not see if anyone else has a solution!
FaithAction’s Coffee House sessions have proved to be a wealth of information, ideas and tips on good practice that has really helped me understand how faith groups can continue to function under the current challenging conditions. I would highly recommend dropping in on relevant topics. Moira Groborz, Community Services Officer, Braintree Council
An oasis in the week to share inspiration, innovation, ideas and hope through sharing our faith, beliefs and best practice. Wouldn’t miss it! Kathy Coe, Founder, Pathway Projects
I have really benefited from these meetings, as it has opened up a whole new world! Prior to the lockdown, my work was very narrow and just focused on the day to day running of the Bread Church. We have found the meetings very useful and informative about other faiths. Lorraine Howarth, Bread Church, Liverpool
Last November we held a virtual conference, Building Back Better: The Role of Faith. We aimed to highlight and celebrate the ways faith communities responded to the pandemic and to bring attention to the benefits faith communities offer to society beyond the crisis response.
This is a conversation that FaithAction strives to continue, to highlight the ways in which faith communities should be included in the rebuild of a more cohesive, connected and prosperous future. This needs to happen at a national level, but we also want to champion lesser heard voices of grassroots groups and individuals.
So come along and share your thoughts and join the conversation.
