Fife Interfaith Group was first formed in 2004 by Fife Council but since 2010 has operated independently running its own affairs. 2012 was the culmiunation of much planning when the Interfaith Peace garden was opened in Beveridge Park, Kirkcaldy and is still a peaceful place to sit and meditate in the lovely surroundings. The Peace Garden which includes a Peace Pole was sponsored by Lottery Funding Scotland, Fife Council, Park Hotel and local tradesmen who donated and carved the Peace Pole. Since then many events have been held including an annual Interfaith Lecture held in Scottish Interfaith Week in November which is now in its 7th year. The aim of Fife Interfaith Group is bring together people of all Faiths in Fife and advance public knowledge and practices of the different Faith Communities in Fife.
7th Annual Interfaith Lecture 2018
The Lecture was given by Lesley Laird MP and compared the faith in religion with those people who had fought political fights when there seemed no hope eg Abolishing Slavery, Suffragettes. It is this same faith that helps to improve the world. The full context of the Lecture can be sen on Past Events

Meeting with Annabelle Ewing MSP
Colm Wilson Chairman and Frank Bowness Secretary were delighted to meet with Annabelle Ewing MSP at the Fife Refugee Centre in Kirkcaldy on the 25 January 2019. The meeting followed an invitation from the Fife Interfaith to Mrs Ewing to their 7th Annual Interfaith Lecture in November 2018. Mrs Ewing was unable to come to the lecture but indicated that she would like to meet with members of the Fife Interfaith Group to find out the scope and range of their activities, This was arranged and an excellent meeting was held at which many aspects of Interfaith were discussed to assist Mrs Ewing in understanding the events that are held in Fife to spread the message of Interfaith. Colm and Frank were touched that Mrs Ewing took time out from her busy schedule to meet them.
