About The Interfaith Contact Group

The Brighton & Hove Inter-Faith Contact Group (IFCG) exists as a resource for contact and dialogue between many faith communities and traditions in the Brighton and Hove area. We work together to build peaceful relations, and promote greater understanding between people of different faith, and none, and their communities in our City.

Faith communities are currently ‘closed’, following advice from the Government during the Covid crisis. However, the faith communities of Brighton & Hove are still actively supporting our community in many permissible ways, and they can be contacted as usual.

This crisis has presented us all with challenges, and in answer to this the IFCG has set up a blog entitled Words of Connection where we offer readings and also a spoken meditation, designed to provide spiritual support at this time of need.

During 2019 and into 2020 the IFCG and the City celebrated with a programme of activities dedicated to the theme of The Tree of Life. The latest film shows some of our events, and our annual Interfaith Service, which is always held in November, at the end of Interfaith Week. It is made by West Creative ( and we hope you enjoy it.


In 2018 our chosen theme was the Angel of Brighton. Take a look at some of the inspired winners, and please take this opportunity to enjoy our film, made by Sarah West of West Creative, it shows our commitment to bringing people together in an inspired and joyful way. The film stars the people of Brighton and Hove and their children, the Mayor and MP Caroline Lucas, and some of the winners of the Angels in our City Competition.
