Keeping the Faith - Reflecting on Faith contributions during the COVID emergency
Our upcoming 'Keeping the Faith' online event will be the basis of an important dialogue between local faith communities, authorities and other key agencies. As our Interim Director Geoff Sweeney comments: “Our faith communities have been integral to the city’s COVID response. They’ve provided many essential services to those who have needed them most. However, many of these contributions have often been hidden or unnoticed. By shining a light on our faith communities, we hope to highlight their agility, flexibility, and professionalism, build networks and encourage and grow the relationships between faith, civic society and the wider community.”
New experiences of collaboration and partnership across the city point towards changing relationships and mutual perceptions between faith organisations and local authorities, and what the implications might be for future policy. Hear inspirational examples of how communities, motivated by their faiths and beliefs have mobilised to support vulnerable people during the crisis. Reflect on the lessons learned, and the challenges and opportunities ahead for faith groups who want to continue working with local communities as part of the city’s recovery and beyond.
Register below and don’t forget to join us on the 19th May to listen, discuss and learn about faith communities’ work during the pandemic.
