CIFN is currently presenting a programme of monthly on-line events that focuses on local faith communities and their function. It is a strategy for reaching out, communicating and finding support from people of faith who wish to share their faith and recognise the difference that exist. It also provides the medium by which you can offer an understanding about your faith community. The events take the form of a zoom presentation followed by questions and answers with discussion.
If you would like to be involved as a contributor or join in as an observer, please contact Steve Innes. firstname.lastname@example.org or leave an email on the website.
