Next year's Interfaith Forum, which was to be hosted
by the Christchurch Interfaith Society in March 2018, has been cancelled.
Due to unforeseen
changes in their personnel, the Society is no longer able to host an event of
this scale, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
We will keep you
posted if any other city offers to host a Forum next year.
Toronto - acclaimed
the most diverse city in the world and home to six million
Canadians - has been chosen as the host city of the 7th Parliament of the
World’s Religions, to be convened from 1 to 7 November 2018.
More than 10,000
people will participate in the 2018 Parliament, which will last for
seven days and comprise more than 500 programs, workshops, and
dialogues, alongside music, dance, art and photography exhibitions, and
related events presented by the world’s religious communities and
historic 1893 World’s Parliament of Religions in Chicago, modern
Parliaments have attracted participants from more than 200 diverse
religious, indigenous, and secular beliefs and more than 80 nations to
its international gatherings in Chicago (1993), Cape Town (1999),

was a perfect match for the Parliament.”
