Faith

At GBC we work towards tackling and eradicating religious discrimination and condemn the actions of religious hate groups and instead aim to build community cohesion through dialogue and  informative research.

Increased levels of immigration in the UK has meant that The Church of England is no longer the only dominant religious institution in the UK. With a more diverse ethnic make-up the UK population is now comprised of many different religions, like Judaism and Islam. A lack of understanding exists around religions in the UK despite the presence of religious education in schools and we will aim to break down myths and stereotypes surrounding religion.

We are seeking volunteers of all types to work with us. You can write, create a film or story, suggest ideas for new work and web content, agree to an interview or fundraise for us. You can help us  by simply sharing the  resources below to like minded friends and family by email or social media. Join us and help us create a truly GREAT BRITISH COMMUNITY.
