About The Interfaith Contact Group

Welcome to the Interfaith Contact Group of Brighton & Hove. For 25 years we have been bringing different faith groups together in harmonious accord. We are a resource for contact and dialogue between people of faith and none, and we work to promote friendship and greater understanding amongst the people of our City — Brighton & Hove. We do this by organising inspirational events and opportunities. Some of our events are monthly, like our Friendship Hour which usually happens on the last Thursday of the month.

The Interfaith Buddying scheme

Some years ago the umbrella organisation of the interfaith movement in the UK – The Interfaith Network – devised a scheme to enable people of different faith to connect with each other in an open and friendly way with others on a one to one basis.

The IFCG has decided that the time has come to give InterfaithBuddying a try, opening up conversations with those of different faiths, or none, for up to six weekly sessions.The intention is to share your personal engagement about your faith or beliefs, and discover how it affects your daily life, your relationships and communities. Check out our Buddying Scheme page.
