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. For details of our next Friendship Hour, please visit our Prayers and Vigils page

The Interfaith Buddying scheme

The Interfaith Buddying Scheme is about being in conversation with someone from a different faith (or none)  for up to six weekly sessions for about an hour.

The scheme has been in operation since the beginning of the year, and the feedback has been very positive, with real friendships being formed, opening up unexpected opportunities to learn about different faiths in an illuminating way.

Check out our Buddying Scheme page.
