Welcome to Preston Faith Forum
Preston Faith Forum was formed in 2003 as a way of representing the voice of faith groups and communities. Since then, the Faith Forum has provided a means for communication and consultation between city council and communities.
We also run, facilitate, and support a number of activities aimed at raising awareness of aspects of the various faiths, and in the process encouraging and promoting dialogue. Preston is a multi- cultural, multi-racial City with people of a range of faiths and of no faith. These diverse communities make a major contribution to the economic, social and cultural life of the City.
Between them, the faith communities have a large number of buildings, both historic and contemporary, many of which have been developed to provide community facilities. These old, new and adapted buildings express the diversity which is characteristic of Preston and some of them can be visited as part of the faith trail.
This brochure is intended to give you a greater insight into the different faiths. Inside you will find some information about each faith, something of the history of that faith in Preston, and details as to where different centres of worship are to be found. We hope that you enjoy exploring this rich heritage.
