Dialogue Society will host a community engagement event as part of the Interfaith Week that will bring members of different faith groups together to highlight their works and experiences in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The event will take place online and will be live-streamed to the Dialogue Society YouTube channel on 25th November 2020 at 17:00.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many communities across the UK and faith communities have been forced to close their community hubs and places of worship to help contain the spread of coronavirus. However, faith groups worked tirelessly with their never-ending compassion and altruism to inspire community spirit, hope, positivity, and help their communities cope with these uncertain times. As Dialogue Society, we would like to bring light to these efforts to inspire more individuals to do more.

The event will convey the message of hope, solidarity, care, empathy, and will inspire our communities to stand together as a strong cohesive society.
