‘Together in Service’ is a 3 year programme celebrating social action projects, and can be based around each of the faith communities religious festivals or dedicated volunteering days. It is designed to motivate and inspire new work, especially around multi-faith volunteering projects between religions.
The initiative will be based around an ongoing monthly calendar of faith-based volunteering. Up to 1 week every month will be focused on the volunteering that the featured faith undertakes by itself, for example the Christian-led Street Pastors or food banks. The programme will then feature multi-faith projects, where the lead faith has joined up with other religions to deliver voluntary work.
