Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme


We are excited to launch 'Religion and Global Challenges', a new podcast of the Cambridge Interfaith Programme, which explores how religious narratives and ideas, practices and experiences inform some of the most crucial challenges facing our world today.

The podcast is part of CIP's ambitious Religion and Global Challenges Initiative

You can look forward to monthly sessions where we will invite guest speakers to discuss topics ranging from religion and climate change to how people navigate religious difference in their everyday lives.
