Interfaith Alliance UK
Occupy Faith UK, working in solidarity with the global Occupy movement
Registered Charity Number: 1123638
Occupy Faith UK is the operational name of Interfaith Alliance UK, a charity dedicated to the promotion of religious harmony for the public benefit, striving for social and economic justice for all God's children.
Occupy Faith UK stands in solidarity with Occupy Faith in the United States and the global Occupy movement, comprising people of many faiths and beliefs working together to build God's Kingdom, where women and men of all economic, ethnic, religious and other backgrounds are cared for with parity of esteem.
We support interfaith activities such as Scriptural Reasoning, bringing people of different faiths together to read together their sacred texts in order better to understand religious difference and foster "better quality disagreement". We have organised a national "Pilgrimage for Justice", where hundreds of pilgrims of many religions walk together from St Paul's Cathedral in London to Canterbury Cathedral. Private members of Occupy Faith UK also organised the "Building a Just Society" conference where serious concerns about economic and social justice were discussed. We work intensively in the deprived London Borough of Hackney, supporting "Faith in Hackney", our project to bring people of many faiths together to understand one another and build social justice in their communities, through deep engagement with their holy books in Scriptural Reasoning, and expressing their faith in beautiful ways through song and music.
Interfaith Alliance UK is a member of the Inter Faith Network for the United Kingdom, the All Faiths Network for the United Kingdom and the Scriptures in Dialogue Academic Collaboration, of Jewish, Christian and Islamic theological colleges and academic institutions. We have a warm and friendly relationship with our sister organisation, the Interfaith Alliance in the United States.
Our sister interfaith organisations also in the Scriptures in Dialogue Academic Collaboration are Scriptural Reasoning (http://www.scripturalreasoning.org.uk/), the Imams and Rabbis Council of the United Kingdom (http://www.imamsandrabbiscouncil.org/) and the Christian Muslim Council (http://www.christianmuslimcouncil.org/).
