Welcome to the Cambridge Inter-faith Programme

Concentrating on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, CIP explores the different resources that each faith has for serious engagement with each other, and with the wider secular and religious context. It provides a platform for inter-faith academic research while promoting religious literacy in the wider world through its public education projects.

"Few things are likely to be more important for the twenty-first century than wise faith among the world's religious communities. That calls for fuller understanding, better education, and a commitment to the flourishing of our whole planet." - Professor David F. Ford -

"We need forms of study in which we make our deep reasonings public, so that religious persons better understand each other; and so that non-religious persons can grasp not only our views but how we arrive at them." - Dr Nicholas Adams -

"We must work together to create a world in which the fruits of faith - understanding, tolerance and compassion - enrich and safeguard the world of our children, and our children's children." - HRH The Prince of Wales -
