Event Details

A day event (10.30 – 16.00), open to all who are interested

Purpose: Creating space and opportunity for ecumenical encounter across culture, faiths and churches in Scotland.

Overall Theme: Our Future Scotlands

Space and freedom to explore our hopes and concerns for life in Scotland - the geography and imagined communities we inhabit. Crossing boundaries, confronting divisions, creating space, connecting stories

Topics for Reflection, Conversation and Sharing:

  • Welcome and Hospitality – from strangers to friends in a Scotland of diverse cultures and faiths.

  • Wellbeing and Food - what food is on the table, who produced and prepares it, and at what cost - and is everyone really invited to share?  

  • Well of Life? – encounters and space for conversation across boundaries of gender and sexuality


  • We gather in an inclusive, open circle – our starting point and place of return. Throughout the day, reflection and conversation will be invited/facilitated in a range of ways, including time alone, in pairs/small groups, in silence, discussion and activity. The prevailing idea of an open table will be present in various ways (but this is not about ecclesiastical inter-communion!)

We hope the day together will be inviting and relaxed. There will be no ‘experts’, but hosts, facilitators, listeners and responders will guide the group through the day.

Scottish Friends of Ecumenism

Scottish Friends of Ecumenism is an open network of people around Scotland and beyond, seeking new spaces and ways to encounter and explore the rich diversity of cultures, faith traditions, communities and ways of living. Rooted in and inspired by the worldwide Christian ecumenical movement - but not part of any official church, ecumenical or interfaith structures. This is about people, places and the realities of living in contemporary Scotland - whatever our background, and wherever we find resources for meaning, purpose and connection in our living.
