DIFA Conference 2017

Lambeth Palace was pleased to host the 2017 Diocesan Interfaith Advisers Conference. Nearly fifty people were able to join us for a day that included not only DIFA's but clergy, chaplains and ordinands with an interest in interfaith work.

Our keynote speaker was Canon Dr Sarah Snyder. Sarah was recently appointed Archbishop's Adviser for Reconciliation. She is a theologian specialising in Christian, Muslim and Jewish relations. She is also a trained mediator.

KEYNOTE ADDRESS: Interfaith and Reconciliation

2016 Conference

Last month, diocesan interfaith advisers gathered at Lambeth Palace for their annual conference. This is an opportunity to meet people from different parts of the country, share stories and hear about what is going on at a national level. This year we were privileged to be joined by Rev Dr Sam Wells, who gave a keynote address entitled ‘Being With Those of Other Faiths’, drawing on his recent book ‘A Nazareth Manifesto’. The full text of Sam’s talk is available to download here. In due course an audio recording will also be available.

New DIFA Interview - Liverpool

Nadine Daniel

In December 2015, Kat Brealey travelled to Liverpool to meet recently-appointed Diocesan Interfaith Adviser, Nadine Daniel. Being in Liverpool was an opportunity to see some of the work Nadine is involved in, as well as hear about her background and passions. Nadine is based at Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral - usually in the offices, but occasionally dangling from a rope as seen in this photo of a charity abseil!
