About Us

The development of the Southwark Multi-Faith Forum (SMFF) is an exciting initiative that is led by and for faith based organisations such as Churches, mosques, temples and other community organisations who define themselves in some way by their religion/faith. Members of the developing Forum believe that by working together on practical community activities and on lobbying government bodies for policies that will help those most in need, we can achieve more for the people of Southwark than we can acting alone.
The main objectives of the Forum are:

During 2003 to 2009, the Forum was managed by a Management Group of 10 individuals from Southwark's different faith communities. Since then it has been managed, without administrative support, by a small team of active residents from different faiths who were previously members of the Management Committee. The original Management Group was formed with the help of the local Council. There are 4 Christian representatives, nominated by the Christian Borough Deans to represent all denominations of the Christian faith and 3 Muslim representatives nominated by Southwark Muslim Forum. There are also representatives from the Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Bahai and Sikh communities present. There are places reserved for representatives from the Jain, Zoroastrian and Rastafarian communities though to date we are still seeking to access representatives from these communities.

On the evening of September 3 2003 at the Damilola Taylor Centre (DTC) in Peckham there will is the inaugural meeting of the full Multi-Faith Forum to which every faith based organisation in the Borough of Southwark is being invited. At this meeting, all faith based organisations in Southwark will be invited to endorse the Multi-Faith Forum and all those voting to endorse the Forum will then become individual members of the new Forum. At that time the existing management group will become the executive committee of the overall Forum."
