The Surrey Faith Links Project took off in November 2009. The Project endeavours to engage faith communities with the wider community and the third sector at large.
As Faith Links Adviser my role is very varied, and generally revolves around linking faith communities with events and organisations in Surrey County.
We are very keen to touch base with all faith organisations and individuals across the County. One of our aims is to produce a valuable database which represents all the faith organisations across Surrey. If you are a member of a faith community, regardless of size, we would love to hear from you and add you to the database.
We send out information to faith organisations that may be of interest to them from a variety of sources, ranging from public bodies, interfaith groups, and individual faith communities. For example we send out information about faith events that are taking place, grants which faith communities can benefit from, and Surrey County Council workshops in which your opinions help shape future decisions for the County.
We are keen to find link persons from all the faith organisations within Surrey whom we can add to our mailing list. Our aim is to have link people who can forward the information to all in your faith organisation / congregation.
The Surrey Faith Links Project is working hard to engage local Boroughs and Districts with their faith communities. So far faith events have been held by the following boroughs: Mole Valley, Epsom & Ewell, Guildford, Woking, Elmbridge, Surrey Heath, SpelthorneĀ and Tandridge.
This website is about the faith communities within Surrey County so please do let us know what you would like added. We are more than happy to add information about your organisation to the website, so long as it is not offensive to others.
If you would like more information please feel free to contact me using the contact us page.
