Peace event at Merrion Centre 2015.
The essence of the work of Leeds Faiths Forum is centred on bringing people together through their faiths and beliefs to share the Commonalities and to respect the differences. Only in this way can we take steps towards creating cohesive and harmonious communities.
The forum is an annual membership organisation open to faith groups and groups of groups, who agree with the aims and aspirations of our constitution
The forum works in partnership with Leeds City Council, various voluntary, community and faith sector organisations.
