What we do

marcus book signingThe World Congress of Faiths (WCF) is based in the UK, with a membership of individuals drawn from all major faith traditions and all five continents.

Its activities are UK-focussed, but draw on an international breadth of knowledge, and its members represent its interests around the world.

WCF members not only find opportunities for personal spiritual growth through interfaith engagement – including publications and exclusive events such as group travel, conferences, workshops and retreats - but also are part of a movement promoting understanding of the importance of spiritual life in our communities and society, and recognition its benefits.

Sikh bracelet detail 2Our openness to the rich diversity of faith and belief is balanced by WCF's commitment to respect the integrity of the world faith traditions. Our activities aim to explore and demonstrate shared values, and to clarify essential differences, believing that both are equally important to strengthening mutual trust and understanding among faith communities.

WCF develops partnerships with other interfaith bodies locally and nationally; with relevant institutions in higher education and theological training, and with agencies seeking common action on issues such as peace, justice and ecology. Its Executive and other members are authors of some of the most seminal and important interfaith publications, faith leaders, academics and practitioners; everyone who wants to learn and contribute is welcome to apply for membership of this unique, vibrant and welcoming community.
