We are not the only ones on an interfaith path....
Interfaith Prayer Bradford
The Columba Community began in 2000 as a group of Christians, supported by the Churches of Bradford, eager to encourage fresh thinking and action in an interfaith context.
- We work in the city to build bridges with other faiths and communities.
- We offer opportunities for prayer, reflection and hospitality for people of faith and goodwill.
- We seek to engage in creative partnerships and to network
By means of reflection, exploration and dialogue we aim to be open, hospitable and caring towards people of any background, culture, creed or ideology. We engage alongside others with issues of common concern in our city and beyond. We seek after peace, justice and liberation for all God’s creation. The community welcomes all those committed to faith relationships in our city.

PeaceNext.org is a free service provided by the Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions.
Our work is all about creating spaces where people can work together for a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world.
The Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions was created to cultivate harmony among the world's religious and spiritual communities and foster their engagement with the world and its guiding institutions in order to achieve a just, peaceful and sustainable world.
The Council for a Parliament of the World's Religions seeks to promote interreligious harmony, rather than unity. The problem with seeking unity among religions is the risk of loss of the unique and precious character of each individual religious and spiritual tradition; this understanding is key to our framework.
Interreligious harmony, on the other hand, is an attainable and highly desirable goal. Such an approach respects, and is enriched by, the particularities of each tradition. Moreover, within each tradition are the resources (philosophical, theological and spiritual teachings and perspectives) that enable each to enter into respectful, appreciative and cooperative relationships with persons and communities of other traditions.
