To gather and disseminate information about relations with people of other faiths across the Anglican Communion


NIFCON was founded in 1993, with discussions taking place from 23rd January 1992 onwards. Its beginnings are very much related to Lambeth 1988, when the Inter Faith area was present for the first time in a substantive if limited way.

  • Building Bridges

    Five pairs of scholars (each consisting of one Muslim and one Christian) presented a pair of papers. In the first four sessions each paper was followed by a prepared response from the scholar of the other faith to the presenter. After the fifth pair, participants split into small groups to consider ways of carrying the dialogue forward. Subsequent meetings have focused on a particular theme. Some of the papers presented have been published in book form
