INTERFAITH:

Live every Tuesday @ 1

 

Join us every Tuesday, and share your lunch with us, on our Facebook Live show. Streamed from Zoom, with hosts and guests from a variety of faiths and cultures, we bring you friendship and inspiration: breaking down the division between race and religion by comparing common motivations and uniting in our desire to enact change. 

 

Only TOGETHER can we build a brighter, more equitable future.

Interfaith Insights

 

Interfaith Insights examines how faith motivates people to do great things. The hosts from their different faith perspectives (Judaism, Islam and Christianity) explore how interfaith community can live on despite lockdown. They dive into positive news stories, and interview amazing guests from founders of NGOs, musicians, human rights advocates, religious leaders to local volunteers and first responders.

We Are 1

 

We are 1 is a monthly programme hosted by EIFA, in partnership with an international interfaith or intercultural organisation. We learn more about their work, how they have adapted to the pandemic, and reflect on this case study on how we can - collectively - Build Back Better in Scotland. 

 

Future of Faith

 

Once per month, EIFA’s shows have a #youthquake. In partnership with Edinburgh Coexistence Initiative, we host a debate on a social topic, investigate how faith inspires these young people to enact change, and their hopes for the future of faith and community.

Our interview with Jerry Boweh: who escaped Civil War in Liberia, and sought asylum in the UK, settling in Glasgow. He started the Glasgow Gospel Choir, to fund his rehabilitation schools project in Liberia, and which helped him develop the identity Glasberian - also the title of his upcoming book!

Witness the empowering atmosphere of our live shows! In this clip, The Voice finalist Michelle John, and Rukhsana from the Healing Cave Centre, join forces. They share their experiences as survivors of domestic abuse, share coping strategies such as deciding to choose gratitude, and Michelle sings us her single Priceless, for the brave women who open up on our show. 

This project has been made possible by Foundation Scotland, as a part of their COVID-19 Resilience Response.
